The Politics of History and Identity

The Politics of History and Identity

(p.51) 2 The Politics of History and Identity
We Will Always Be Here
Denise E. Bates, John David Smith
University Press of Florida

This chapter addressed the controversial issues of tribal resurgence, legitimacy, politics that surround tribal recognition, and the task of challenging dominant historical narratives. Although Indian communities are grappling with these issues on a national scale, they particularly resonate with southern Indian groups who are situated within a particularly unique regional context. The contributions to this chapter reveal the complexity of Indian identity and the role that politics play in both federal and state recognition—both deeply contentious processes.

Keywords:   Indian identity, tribal resurgence, legitimacy, tribal recognition, dominant historical narratives
