Yes--don't forget what we've already learned from the cultural studies
people via reader-response theory (or vice versa): that meaning too is
in the eye of the beholder. Native American cultures are unmelted in the
American pot today because they resisted, reworked, and turned to their
own uses what was on offer from Europeans.
