Indianthusiasm By Hartmut Lutz, Florentine Strzelczyk, Renae Watchman Cover Image
Available Now


speaks to concepts of representation, Indigeneity, transnationality, politics of decolonization

asks critical questions about authenticity, cultural appropriation, and probes the biased and racist aspects of what is seen as simple 'honoring' of Indigenous cultures

interviews act as mythbusters

hobbyists pitch tipis on the banks of the Rhine or in green rolling hills rather than the often harsh reservation lands of North American Indigenous peoples;

obsession with the past erases active presence of modern Indigenous peoples

offers a number of conflicting Indigenous perspectives, not a unified voice

first work to explores the transatlantic connections created by Indianthusiasm
