“An Italian-American frontier: appropriating Native American culture in Umbertina and Ghost Dance” discusses the relevance of Native American spirituality in Italian American novels Umbertina by Helen Barolini and Ghost Dance by Carole Maso. In Umbertina the immigrant women’s devotional pilgrimage to the shrine of Kateri Tekakwitha is a means through which they find connection to the American land as new motherland. The performance of Native American ceremonial in Ghost Dance is also a way for the second generation immigrant protagonists to attain rootedness in the United States.
