Representations- Portraits of “The Whiteman” by Keith Basso Represents an attempt to get an emic perspective What is done publicly does not match what happens privately (off-stage) Basso gets the backstage- he shows what white men look like to other cultures. This book provides non-Indian Americans a picture of how white men appear to the Western Apaches. Portraits- joking imitations/ performances of whites to Apaches that are represented in dramatic performances where the Apaches represent both the the joker and themselves. The joker makes jokes about his fellow Apache in the context of the whiteman, he is not the whiteman, These performances were started by young children, this creating culture and it now is an art from to attempt to make sense of others. In this exogamous matrilineal clan society, 90% of performances are by adult men and the Whiteman and the apache usually have a kinship and close relationship. They view friendship like leather- it starts hard and stiff but gets soft and looser. When a joker picks and objects of the joke and joks wit his friend, it is important that the jokes do not go too far and hurt the relationship. There are risks with this genre and involve the social fabric of society. Individuals as well as the audience and societal relationships are included.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
