Overview

Ziolkowski (Russian, Miami U., Ohio) examines how the whites who displaced the Navajos and the Russians who displaced the Chechens combined prejudice with received assumptions to produce a cultural stereotyping the intruders tried to use to justify their attempts at domination and outright control. Ziolkowski covers the invention of the "evil Chechen," the literature of the Chechen deportation and later, education and alienation amongst the Navajos on the reservation, the Navajo deportation in literature, and the continuing role of the medicine man and his alter egos.
