“For over three hundred years, the Indian peoples of North America have attracted the interest of diverse segments of German society–missionaries, writers, playwrights, anthropologists, filmmakers, non-professional hobbyists and enthusiasts, and even royalty. Today, German scholars continue to be drawn to Indians, as is the German public: tour groups from Germany frequent Plains reservations in the summer, and so-called Indianerclubs, where participants dress up in “authentic” Indian costume, are common. In this fascinating volume, scholars and writers illuminate the long-standing connection between Germans and the Indians.” (aus dem Klappentext)
