"Canaanites, Cowboys, and Indians" Reconsidered

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In 1988 I published an essay, "Canaanites, Cowboys, and Indians," that examines the nexus between the conquest narratives of the Hebrew Old Testament and the way those narratives were appropriated in North America in the process of the expropriation of Native American lands. The focus of the essay is a critique of liberation theology and its occlusion of Native American perspectives, and it is taught on a regular basis in seminaries. The essay does not, however, reveal it engagement with contemporary Palestine that derives from my experiences as an archaeological volunteer in Israel in 1985 and 1986. During those summer trips, I was able to connect my experiences as a Native person to what was happening to Palestinian people in the years leading up to the first Intifada. My paper for the panel will provide an opportunity to flesh out the connection between my travels in the West Bank and the agenda set forth in the essay. The paper, for me, is an opportunity to reflect on how solidarity creates an important grounding for comparative work.
