Abstract
Stereotipna podoba severnoameriškega staroselca – Indijanca je še danes globoko zakoreninjena med Slovenci. Realnost pa je veliko bolj kompleksna in zanimiva kot ideja, da gre v primeru t. i. Indijancev za enotno kulturo. Govorimo namreč o različnih narodih, ki imajo včasih več skupnega s priseljenci iz Evrope kot med seboj. Ta pestrost je povezana z vprašanjem, v kolikšni meri je kultura posameznih staroselskih skupnosti sprejela kulturne elemente evropskih priseljencev. Prikazati to pestrost v praksi je problematično zaradi objektivnih omejitev. Zato je v diplomskem delu kot glavna raziskovalna metoda izbrana študija primera. Kot predmet preučevanja je bilo izbrano pleme Mattaponov iz Virginije, in sicer zaradi njihove zgodovine. Predniki današnjih Mattaponov so ena prvih skupin severnoameriških staroselcev, ki so stopili v stik z evropskimi priseljenci pred več kot štiristo leti. Gre za majhno pleme, o katerem je malo zgodovinskih zapisov, a je štiristo let dovolj dolgo obdobje, da je mogoče opaziti, kako se je kultura plemena spreminjala in prilagajala družbi priseljencev. Glavni vir informacij o plemenu Mattaponi so publikacije in sestavki, objavljeni na svetovnem spletu. S pomočjo analize tako zbranih pisnih virov je bilo mogoče sestaviti zgodovino plemena in prepoznati spreminjanje kulturnih vzorcev, kar je omogočilo potrditev osnovnih hipotez – torej je vodilo v spoznanje, da je prav sprejemanje tujih kulturnih vzorcev omogočilo plemenu Mattaponi kljub veliki demografski in kulturni ogroženosti ohraniti svojo lastno identiteto vse do danes. Podana študija primera meče novo luč na odnose med severnoameriškimi staroselci in potomci evropskih priseljencev v ZDA in poskuša opraviti s črno-belimi stereotipi, ki so v slovenski družbi še razširjeni.

Title:JUDICIARY AND POLITICAL POSITION OF NATIVE AMERICAN NATIONS IN THE USA; CASE STUDY OF THE NATION OF MATTAPONI OF VIRGINIA
Abstract:
The stereotypical image of an indigenous person of North America–an Indian, is still deeply rooted among the Slovenes. However, the reality is far more complex and interesting than the idea that when talking about the so-called Indians we are referring to one single culture. What we are talking about, are different nations that sometimes have more in common with immigrants from Europe as they do among themselves. This variety leads to the question to what extend the culture of individual indigenous communities accepted the cultural elements of European immigrants. In practice, it is problematic to show this variety due to objective reasons. Therefore, the main working method of the thesis is a case study. The subject of the study was the Mattaponi tribe from Virginia, chosen because of their history. The ancestors of today’s Mattaponi tribe are one of the first North American native inhabitants that made contact with European immigrants more than 400 years ago. It is a small tribe, and there are not many historical records about them; however, a 400-year long period is long enough to observe the changes in the culture of the tribe and its adaptations to the immigrant community. The main source of information on the Mattaponi tribe is publications and essays, published on the Internet. By analysing the written sources collected on the Internet it was possible to compose the history of the tribe and recognize the changes in the cultural patterns, which enabled the confirmation of the basic hypothesis; the case study showed that adopting foreign cultural patterns enabled the Mattaponi tribe to maintain their own identity up until now despite big demographic and cultural endangerment. The presented case study casts a new light on the relationship between the indigenous people of North America and the descendants of European immigrants in the United States of America and tries to end the black and white stereotypes still popular in the Slovenian society.

Keywords:indigenous people of the America, immigrants, history, culture, identity
