  1. Introduction
  2. Is the Indian American identity homogenous or plural?
  3. The question of authenticity, not new but still relevant

France Info, a well known French radio station, reported about the federal American Government's decision to grant 1.4 billion dollars as claimed by Elouise Cobell, from Blackfeet tribe, to compensate the native land dispossession since 1887. This news reset the question of Indian American dispossession, and, in relation with the distribution of money, the question of Indian American identity arises: who is a real Indian? As many researchers, officials and anthropologists wondered about this since the John Collier law (or Indian Reorganization Act, 1934) that restored the concept of tribe by federal acknowledgment, we interrogate what really is the Indian American identity, its boundaries and authenticity. We ponder about whether it possesses a global Indian American identity, and whether those identities are authentic or were altered.
