In this literary study, the writer presents a comparison and contrast of race and marriage in the novels "Grass Dancer" by Susan Power and "Mean Spirit" by Linda Hogan. The writer discusses that Hogan implies that inter-racial marriages are part of a construct that white culture has imposed upon Native Americans. The writer maintains that by providing an example of a white man and black woman being married, the lack of cultural support of whites and Indians is clearly manifest through racist values. The writer discusses that power also suggests this within McVay's marital inclusion in the tribe through marriage, but reveals the lack of real cultural inclusion because of her status as a white woman.
