Bracken meticulously analyzes those documents—some canonical, like Franz Boas's ethnographies, others unpublished and little known—to trap a colonialist discourse within the act of creating fictions approximately sure First countries after which deploying these fictions opposed to them. instead of touching on items that exist already, the "potlatch papers" as a substitute gave themselves anything to consult; a reflect during which to watch now not "the Indian," yet "the European."
