Indeed, the dominant society has developed a set of stereotypes about Native peoples’ inherent character that reduces them to an association with nature and the land. 19 The self-construction of “the Indian” that arises as a defensive measure is clearly evident in Meyer’s novels. The Quileute people are repeatedly associated with the land, and their wolf form makes them a part of the natural world of the Olympic Peninsula.
Disputes over the land simmered during the second half of the twentieth century and came to a head in 2005, when two Quileute people who were collecting firewood on the disputed area were arrested and charged.

They denied access to Second Beach by closing the parking lot and trail, both of which are Quileute territory, in order to bring the other party to the table.
