With a focus on visual representations and perceptions of American Indian peoples, arts, and cultures in the United States and globally, as well as critiques of museum representations of indigenous peoples, Sarah’s current research focuses on postcards as documents. Produced as multiples and distributed internationally, postcard images mark evidence of travel and growing tourism in America and serve to reinforce and perpetuate conventional, constructed narratives regarding indigenous communities, individuals, and lifeways. What complicates understanding of this system of representation is that people depicted were often actively engaged in the creation and dissemination of such images. This provides evidence of continuity and transformation of cultures despite genocide and relates to emerging theoretical paradigms of indigenous knowledge, specifically regarding the transfer of intellectual property, ownership, and sovereignty.
