You Don’t Meet Our Criteria: Racial Boundary Maintenance in the Federal Acknowledgement Process

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



Abstract:

Aiming to explicate the processes through which state bureaucracies continue racial boundary maintenance in the age of race neutrality, this study merges theoretical perspectives on race, boundary maintenance, and neoinstitutionalism to inform the case analysis of the Indiana Miami tribe’s failed attempt to garner federal recognition through the Bureau of Indian Affairs’(B.I.A.) Federal Acknowledgment Process (FAP). Coupling qualitative immersion in the historical development of the FAP with analysis of over 250 pages of institutional rulings used to reject the Indiana Miami’s petition, this study displays how a cultural veneer of race neutrality obscured the B.I.A.’s use of cultural and political racial stereotypes to reject the Indiana Miami petition. By highlighting the key role cultural veneers play to obfuscate the maintenance of racial boundaries, these findings speak to broad theoretical concerns pertaining to race, inequality, and how state bureaucracies maintain the winners and losers in racial stratification systems. General implications pertaining to racial inequality and the role of culture and state bureaucracies are discussed.
