Bulley, Jennifer R.
MetadataShow full item record
First, I offer a brief history and background of each group, providing the reasons for their boundedness in the first place, a taste of their culture, and their origins as a group as we see them today. Second, I compare and contrast their location, mobility, and living conditions. Third, I compare their identities, both self-identity and their stigma in society, in relation to their boundedness and societal position. Fourth, I show how these two groups relate to public authority and how the government helps (and fails to help) them. Fifth, I compare the dynamics and forces that lead to their poor economic development as groups. Lastly, I discuss how all of these realms of life interact and perpetuate each other in an intermingled and complex system of Bulley 3 causes and effects. I also offer some recommendations of how poverty can be diminished in both the Navajo and Roma populations. [From Introduction]
