Louis S. Warren, "Wage Work in the Sacred Circle: The Ghost Dance as Modern Religion"
Abstract: The Ghost Dance is commonly understood as a backward-looking rejection of modern life. Yet the teachings of the religion often incorporated exhortations to wage labor and other instructions for good living in the reservation era as necessary measures to precipitate the millennium. In reaching backward and forward simultaneously, the Ghost Dance helped resolve contradictions of Indian identity in the post-conquest world.
Jennifer Bess, “The Price of Pima Cotton: The Cooperative Testing and Demonstration Farm at Sacaton, Arizona, and the Decline of the Pima Agricultural Economy, 1907–1920”
Abstract: Despite the original intent of the cooperative farm established by the Bureau of Plant Industry on the Gila River Reservation, it siphoned economic value from Pima families into the regional economy, revealing the impact of resource depletion and wage labor on the Pima and their strategies of managing socioeconomic change.
