Extinction or Survival?: The Remarkable Story of the Tigua, an Urban American Urban Tribe - new book

ISBN: 9781594515941

This book tells the story of how the Tigua, a small, urban American Indian community, has persevered through generations of poverty and persecution. The contemporary issue of Indian gaming is explored, and the politics behind the tribe''s gaming rise and eventual fall is detailed within the context of what has become a modern-day power struggle. Using ethnographic and ethnohistoric methods, this research details the specific cultural mechanisms employed by the Tigua to resist forced enculturation and survive into the twenty-first century as a distinct and proud community. The Tigua Indians of Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, El Paso, Texas, arrived around the time of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt. Stripped of their landholdings by the early 1900s, the tribe was forgotten by the state and federal governments and was described by researchers as moribund if not extinct. In the mid-1960s, on the verge of losing their homes, tribe members petitioned for government recognition as an American Indian community. Though recognized as legitimate American Indians by the state of Texas in 1968 and the federal government in 1987, questions about their cultural authenticity lingered. Had the Tigua somehow survived through 300 years of persecution and urban encroachment, or were they really just Mexicanized Indians acting fraudulently? In order to respond to this question, it is necessary to understand how terms such as indigeneity, identity, authenticity, and culture change/perseverance are understood and defined by the U.S. government. It is also necessary to explore how the issues of power, law, discourse, genocide, and self-determination affect the relationship between the United States of America and its indigenous population.

The Tigua of Ysleta del Sur Pueblo dwell in the outskirts of El Paso, Texas, where the infamous Jack Abramoff was in the news for helping to close their highly successful casino. This casino had created jobs and funded health care for the tribe, and now the Tigua are once more taking action to preserve their economy, membership, and culture. This highly publicised casino story is set against the remarkably rich history of the Tigua, including earlier attempts by national and state governments to steal the tribe's land and destroy its legal status.
