Panel for Southwest/Texas Popular and American Cultural Conference in
Albuquerque, NM, Feb 13-16, 2008. The panel seeks to explore the historic
and current phenomena of repeated migrations of people into North America
and the reactions of dominant cultural groups and incoming cultural
groups. In particular, the panel seeks to explore how Native Americans
have faired in this cyclical process of cultural struggles to dominate or
just to survive. I propose to present a paper that explores the historic
backdrop of this cultural struggle as it moved across North America,
affecting various groups of Native Americans in the wake of advancing
European based cultures. Other participants will be asked to contribute
