AbstractThe present article deals with the theme of negative stereotyping in the backdrop of identity and representation
in Native American drama with special reference to Scott Momaday's The Indolent Boys, The Moon in Two
Windows, and Howe & Gordon's Indian Radio Days. By assuming an explicit postcolonial angle, these plays
consciously subvert the project of negative stereotyping of the natives by employing the ideological vocabulary of
the mainstream Euro-American discourse. In this way, the native American drama has become a significant site
of deconstructing the binary of 'us' and 'them' by reversing the logic of imperialism and by resisting against the
exploitative history of colonization.
