That the treaty between the Cullens and the Quileute people is respected by both parties forms a stark contrast to the history of treaties in the United States. The failure of federal and state governments to observe the principles of the treaties they negotiated in good faith is a constant refrain in American history. Nevertheless, there remains one important similarity between the historical and fictional treaties: both result in the transfer of land ownership. In the Twilight Saga, Bella represents the land, Jacob embodies the Quileute people, and Edward Cullen stands in for the newcomers.

Michael Holquist, trans. Caryl Emerson and Michael Holquist (Austin: Univ. of Texas Press, 1981), 147. 6. Sean Dennis Cashman, America in the Age of the Titans: The Progressive Era and World War I (New York: New York Univ. Press, 1988), 460. 7. , 1968), which notes that World War I propaganda “had to appeal to the basic (and often basest) emotions of the masses—curiosity, preoccupation with violence and sex, greed, and finally, but not least, patriotism” (22).
