Sacagawea's nickname, or the Sacagawea problem

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This performance text enacts a critical cultural politics concerning Native American women and their presence in Western mythology. I interrogate the history of Sacagawea and the representation of native American women in two cultural and symbolic landscapes; the Lewis and Clark Journals and Montana's most famous novel, A.B. Guthrie, Jr.'s mid-century novel (1947), Big Sky.
