This collection of essays examines how sport has contributed to shaping and expressing Native American identitya€”from the attempt of the old Indian Schools to a€œAmericanizea€ Native Americans through sport to the a€œIndian mascota€ controversy and what it says about the broader public view of Native Americans. Additional essays explore the contemporary use of the traditional sport Toka to combat obesity in some Native American communities, the Seminoles' commercialization of alligator wrestlinga€”a a€œNativea€ sport that was, in fact, only developed as a sport due to interest from touristsa€”and much more.
