This chapter discusses the conditions that helped shape the lives of the Indian communities during the American assimilation era; Indian communities' legal status as “domestic subjects” of the United States settler state; and their contest over national domesticity, which revolved around the Indian home and family. The category of domestic management is positioned in opposition to U.S. citizenship, marking its place within but not of the settler nation.
