This chapter argues that even relatively mobile transnational communities must still contend with a powerful imperative to reterritorialize, or to become rooted in a place and in national institutions. It demonstrates how American financing is dependent on certain types of cultural content, specifically culture that invokes a sense of the “folkloric.”

Keywords: mobile transnational communities; reterritorialization; national institutions; American financing; cultural content; sense of folklore
