Indians Illustrated: The Image of Native Americans in the by John M Coward

By John M Coward

After 1850, american citizens swarmed to absorb a raft of latest illustrated journals and papers. Engravings and drawings of "buckskinned braves" and "Indian princesses" proved an immensely well known allure for shoppers of guides like Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper and Harper's Weekly . In Indians Illustrated , John M. Coward charts a social and cultural heritage of local American illustrations--romantic, violent, racist, peaceable, and otherwise--in the heyday of the yank pictorial press. those woodblock engravings and ink drawings put local americans into different types that drew from venerable "good" Indian and "bad" Indian stereotypes already threaded throughout the tradition. Coward's examples express how the style cemented white rules approximately how Indians may still glance and behave--ideas that reduced local americans' cultural values and political impact. His strong research of subject matters and visible tropes unlocks the racial codes and visible cues that whites used to represent--and marginalize--native cultures already engaged in a twilight fight opposed to inexorable westward expansion.
