Guest Lecture: Jeff Corntassel on Indigenous Resurgence

On the 17th of February, the students from POLI 622 will welcome Jeff Corntassel for a guest lecture about Indigenous resurgence.

Jeff Corntassel (Cherokee Nation), received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Arizona in 1998. His research and teaching interests include Indigenous political movements, community resurgence, and sustainable self-determination.

Jeff’s first book, Forced Federalism: Contemporary Challenges to Indigenous Nationhood (2008, University of Oklahoma Press), examines how Indigenous nations in the US have mobilized politically as they encounter new threats to their governance from state policymakers. Jeff’s next book is a co-edited volume (with Professor Tom Holm) entitled The Power of Peoplehood: Regenerating Indigenous Nations (forthcoming), which brings together native scholars from Canada and the US to discuss contemporary strategies for revitalizing Indigenous communities.
