My research focuses on Plains Indian culture and history, Indigenous constructions of sovereignty, political negotiations between Indigenous peoples and nation-states and the impact of kin relationships on this process, social organization, gender, identity, and representation. I am also interested in Indigenous knowledge of plant breeding, particularly corn, the impact of this knowledge of Western breeding practices, as well as current struggles for food sovereignty and Native efforts to return to pre-colonial practices of subsistence.
