This chapter examines the mechanisms by which marriage law disrupts indigenous domesticities under the rubric of consent in which Native literature seeks to confront and suspend the force of law. It explores the concept of entwined consent, the situation whereby Indian women who consented to marry will also consent to the abolition of their indigenous rights, and uses short stories written by E. Pauline Johnson and John M. Oskinson, in which figure the stakes of two forms of marriage: interracial and polygamous.

Keywords:   entwined consent, marriage law, Indian women, indigenous rights, interracial, polygamous
