Discovering The Chichimecas, Charlotte M. Gradie Jul 1994

Discovering The Chichimecas, Charlotte M. Gradie

History Faculty Publications

The European practice of conceptualizing their enemies so that they could dispose of them in ways that were not in accord with their own Christian principles is well documented. In the Americas, this began with Columbus's designation of certain Indians as man-eaters and was continued by those Spanish who also wished to enslave the natives or eliminate them altogether. The word “cannibal” was invented to describe such people, and the Spanish were legally free to treat cannibals in ways that were forbidden to them in their relations with other people. By the late fifteenth century the word cannibal had ...

Grandmother, Daughter, Princess, Squaw: Native American Female Stereotypes In Historical Perspective, Pauleena M. Macdougall

Maine History

One consequence of the English-Algonquin interaction was the development of certain female stereotypes. The Algonquin language term for female evolved into the English word “squaw” and assumed new meaning as it was applied to all Native American women. Similarly, the daughter of a tribal leader; married to a British man, acquired the attributes of European royalty, becoming a “princess. ”


Eastern Abenaki Autonomy And French Frustrations, 1745-1760, David L. Ghere Jun 1994

Eastern Abenaki Autonomy And French Frustrations, 1745-1760, David L. Ghere

Maine History

Most Abenaki Indians became French allies between 1745 and 1760, but in effect it was English policy that ultimately drove them into this alliance. While the Western Abenakis were generally reliable allies, French officials were repeatedly frustrated by their limited influence over the Eastern Abenakis and by the restrained reaction of these Indians to English provocations. Eastern Abenakis became reluctant French allies.

Sacred Bundles Of The Ioway Indians , Lance Michael Foster Jan 1994

Sacred Bundles Of The Ioway Indians , Lance Michael Foster

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

It is with ambivalence that I present this study on the sacred bundles of the Ioway. Although I am an enrolled tribal member of the Kansas-Nebraska branch, and the bundle belief system among the Ioway is no longer active, several people expressed their belief that such a study, and especially the handling and the description of the sacred bundles was a spiritually unwise and even dangerous thing to do. I cannot disagree with this. And so one might ask why, then, did I do it? As the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act has become a major issue to ...

In addition to EuroCanadian perspectives, Native voices are included in this examination, specifically, the opinions and attitudes expressed by aboriginal individuals who either have had experience as Native candidates under the tutelage of non-Native teachers and administrators, or who have spent many years observing the effects of such training upon their youth and their churches. Chapter 1, a history of missionization in Canada, is a discussion of the historical context in which theological training ...
