Open Access Graduate Research Paper
American Indians today are in a limbo created by their changing culture. While the traditional ways are still being taught in the home, white middle class values are being taught in school. Another factor contributing to this situation is the distorted image of the Indian which is sometimes projected by white writers and the mass media. The image of the American Indian today is that of a stoic, long-suffering, proud, warlike, lazy, drunken individual on the government dole. Indians have maintained their proud heritage, but they deal daily with their distorted image.
