“In discussing a wide array of legal, biological, and sociocultural definitions, Eva Garroutte documents how these have frequently been manipulated by the federal government, by tribal officials, and by Indian and non-Indian individuals to gain political, social, or economic advantage.

“”Real Indians “is a remarkably candid, engaging, and compelling book. It tells the important and often controversial story of how ‘Indian-ness’ is negotiated in American culture by indigenous peoples, policy makers, and scholars.”–Robert Wuthnow, author of “Creative Spirituality ”

“Eva Marie Garroutte has done an exemplary job of combining scholarly sources, personal accounts, interview data, and self-reflection to catalog and examine the ways in which individual and collective identities are asserted, negotiated, and revitalized.
