These Indian depictions, his childhood Indians, sustain the subliminally accepted white supremacist imagery that deny Natives their rightful place in American society. The White (sub)Conscience allows Americans to continue to assault Native sovereignty and self-determination as a result of anachronistic misrepresentations of Indian, Americans accept as genuine. The White (sub)Conscience has institutionalized the childhood Indian perception of Natives, ensuring that a subsequent generation of Americans will recognize the white supremacist concept of Indian.

This work will assist in developing a critical analysis of contemporary America, recognizing related institutionalized race themes, and raising more questions that can contribute to understanding the harmful effects of this behavior and forming concepts to remedy this harmful national canon.
