Acerca de


This work provides a unique look at the impact Native Americans have had on American sports and explores the reasons why many of these achievements have gone unheralded in the sports history books. The work also explores sports that are special to the Native American culture, such as Native American tennis and the Seminole's custom of alligator wrestling, as well as the debate over using Native Americans images as sports mascots. Edited by a professor emeritus of sociology and anthropology at Iona College, New York, the volume takes an all encompassing look at how Native Americans are represented in the world of sports. * American Reference Books Annual * The theme of identity and the tensions between American Indian and American identities runs throughout these 12 essays. While sport was presented as a means of assimilation, as it was for many other cultures, in many instances it served to articulate a more powerful Native American character. As a whole, the collection covers a wide range of sports and experiences, from the early-20th-century boarding schools to current disputes over the persistence of Native American mascots. The contributions represent a wide range of disciplines and approaches, including history, sociology, and cultural anthropology, to provide greater insight into the ways in which sport has been used by Native Americans. Perhaps most notable is the variety of sports considered in the collection. While boxing and even lacrosse were seen as ways of demonstrating manliness, basketball, tennis, track and field, and other endeavors were also important as American Indians struggled to find a balance between competing identities. Although each essay offers a brief exploration, the complete volume highlights Native peoples' important contribution to the world of sports. Summing Up: Recommended. * CHOICE *
