Who are Indians?: The Construction of National Community in Rez Politics

Liu Xianghui;  
With children's perspective, William S. Yellow Robe Jr.'s play Rez Politics exposes the identity crisis in the Indian American national community since 1970s, and puts forward the solution of constructing Indian American national community based upon bloodline sharing,which responds to the question of “Who are Indians?” to some extent. However, the solution of bloodline sharing in the play only highlights the communalities of mixed-blood Indians,meanwhile neglecting or evading the heterogeneities represented by those with black bloodline.The neglect or evasion of heterogeneities implies the incompleteness of national community construction, and poses a metaphorical examination of how to truly handle the relationship between heterogeneities and communalities.
