This chapter focuses on John F. Kennedy's New Frontier relationship with TV sitcoms. Kennedy's New Frontier concentrated on issues concerning the survival, treaty rights, self-determination, tribal sovereignty, and cultural integrity of American Indian communities. The philosophy of the New Frontier in shifting Indian–settler relations served as starting point for shaping the “worked and reworked” televisions of New Frontier sitcom Indians and interpreted politicized televisual spaces of the 1960s.

Keywords:   John F. Kennedy, New Frontier, TV sitcoms, American Indian, Indian-settler relations
