This book examines discourse concerned with the "unique" relationship between Native and White Americans. The rhetoric which influenced events in 1864 at Sand Creek, Colorado, and which was generated by the resulting controversy is examined as a case study to provide generalizations regarding this interaction. The major questions the author posed: How did the ideas and images present in the rhetoric of Sand Creek function within the "situation" of Sand Creek; and what do these ideas and images reveal about the relationship of Native and White Americans? Contents: include: Parkman, Morton and Government Constitutions: Key Symbols of Native Americans; The Audience; The "Rocky Mountain News" and the Symbols of Extermination; Governor John Evans: Elite Symbols of Native Americans and the Legitimation of Extermination; Colonel John Chivington: Elite Symbols of Native Americans and the Legitimation of Extermination; and Conclusions and Implications: From Sand Creek Lai 4.
