This introductory chapter explains the representational adjustments and readjustments of indigenous people in popular culture. It focuses on North American sitcoms such as I Love Lucy and Moose TV, providing a critical analysis of indigeneity and interculturality between the indigenous and settler. The chapter also discusses several approaches to interpreting representations of indigeneity in sitcoms and textual examples that reveal sitcoms' homogeneous-heterogeneous and hierarchical-nonhierarchical visions of indigeneity. The intertextual heritage in sitcom producers and their representations on and against televisual, cultural, and political landscapes are also described.
