Summary note
"This book examines the ways in which North American Indigenous identity has been (re)imagined, represented, and negotiated in German, Croatian, Italian, Polish, and Czech culture. Employing a cross-disciplinary and comparative approach and drawing on a range of media--from literature, comics, and film to photography, painting, and the performative arts--across different historical and cultural backgrounds, it aims both to contribute innovative scholarship on Indigenous studies in Europe and open a new avenue in the field by focusing on Central European settings that have received little or no critical attention to date." -- page [4] of cover.
