Description This essay deals with two plays by the contemporary Native American author Hanay Geiogamah, Body Indian and Foghorn. Based on the premise that literature plays an important role in disrupting the exercise of power and written against the backdrop of critical whiteness studies, it investigates how the playwright intervenes in the assumptions about whiteness as a static privilege-granting category and system of dominance.
Prispevek obravnava drami Body Indian in Foghorn sodobnega ameriškega staroselskega avtorja Hanaya Geiogamaha. Z izhodiščem v kritiški misli o pomembni družbeni vlogi književnih besedil in opirajoč se na postkolonialno kritiko, raziskuje, kako dramatik posega v domneve o beli rasi kot trajno priviligirani kategoriji in neukinljivi dominanci.
