In chapter one, an examination of two short stories by E. Pauline Johnson exemplify the interstices of race, gender, and nation as they pertain to the concept of civilizing Indians and excluding Native women from national spaces (both First Nation and Canada) through the Indian Act in the early 1900's. Johnson, through her heroines and the intimate act of marriage and public act of citizenship, speaks to the colonial restructuring of Native lands and bodies.
