    Racial tension between Native American and white people on and near Indian reservations is an ongoing problem in the United States. As far back as 1886, the Supreme Court said that "because of local ill feeling, the people of the United States where [Indian tribes] are found are often their deadliest enemies.Racial tension between Native American and white people on and near Indian reservations is an ongoing problem in the United States. As far back as 1886, the Supreme Court said that 'because of local ill feeling, the people of the United States where [Indian tribes] are found are often their deadliest enemies'. This book examines the history of troubled relations on and around Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota over the last three decades and asks why Lakota Indians and whites living there became hostile to one another. Thomas Biolsi's important study traces the origins of racial tension between Native Americans and whites to federal laws themselves, showing how the courts have created opposing political interests along race lines. Drawing on local archival research and ethnographic fieldwork on Rosebud Reservation, Biolsi argues that the court's definitions of legal rights - both constitutional and treaty rights - make solutions to Indian-white problems difficult. Although much of his argument rests on his analysis of legal cases, the central theoretical concern of the book is the discourse rooted in legal texts and how it applies to everyday social practices. This nuanced and powerful study sheds much-needed light on why there are such difficulties between Native Americans and whites in South Dakota and in the rest of the United States.

  2. Lakota culture, world economy

    Pickering, Kathleen Ann, 1958-
    Lincoln : University of Nebraska Press, ©2000.

    Every day of their lives, Lakotas grapple with decisions about the role of tradition in the context of a modernising world. Wage earners on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations struggle to pay bills yet adhere to traditional notions of reciprocity and generosity. Hunters, quiltmakers, and beadworkers depend on public welfare assistance to supplement their income. Small business owners still participate in traditional community give-aways. Those with strong connections to their extended family and deep roots in Lakota communities often find their best career opportunities far from the reservation. "Lakota Culture, World Economy" uses extensive interviews with residents of the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations to present the first in-depth look at the modern economy of the Lakotas. Workers both in and out of the home, small business owners, federal and tribal government employees, and unemployed and underemployed Lakotas speak directly about their economic prospects, the changes they have experienced, and how they cope with living in communities that are in many ways marginalised by the modern world economy. Kathleen Ann Pickering weaves these compelling first-person accounts with broader theoretical considerations to create a nuanced ethnographic tapestry of life today on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations. Particularly valuable are her consideration of the far-reaching economic significance of traditional Lakota households and her assessment of how Lakota identity - shaped by gender, ethnicity, race, and class - is inextricably bound up with the modern reservation economy. Kathleen Ann Pickering is an assistant professor of anthropology at Colorado State University.
