Current Research Session
“New Buffaloes” – New Ways?: (papers of 20 minutes)
The term "new buffalo" is used as a metaphor for Indian casinos by both Indians and Non-Indians. This workshop will deal with a wider range of “New Buffaloes” and their effects on Native American culture. These “New Buffaloes” include Native American commercial art, music, film, literature, tourism, on- and off-reservation economic enterprises - and casinos. We invite papers that deal with this topic.
What are the effects of the “New Buffaloes” on Native North America?
Have the “New Buffaloes” influenced a new generation of Indians?
Are there new concepts of gender, ethnicity, race, economy, leadership, and religion develop-ing?
What are the effects on museum exhibitions, archaeology, and the art market?
What are the effects on Native American representation in literature, media, and on the inter-net?
How do the “New Buffaloes” affect the federal recognition process and vice versa?
