The Indian Citizenship Act and the Indian New Deal�as the belief of this e-book indicates�are emblematic of the superiority of the duality people citizenship that fused American Indians to the country, but segregated them on reservations. This duality of inclusion and exclusion grew incrementally and persists now, as a long-lasting influence of nineteenth-century Native-US rhetorical relations.
