Shades of Hiawatha

Staging Indians, Making Americans, 1880-1930

Alan Trachtenberg

Focusing on a period of consolidation of the USA as a nation, this study explores the Indian and the immigrant, two entangled figures that preoccupied American public opinion at the turn of the 20th century. The book examines the figure of the Indian in the light of Longfellow's popular poem, The Song of Hiawatha (1855), and discusses the East's perception of the West - widely associated with native peoples - which became a powerful nationalizing force.
