Explores how indigenous nationhood has emerged and been maintained in the face of aggressive efforts to assimilate Native peoples.

Tribal Worlds considers the emergence and general project of indigenous nationhood in several geographical and historical settings in Native North America. Ethnographers and historians address issues of belonging, peoplehood, sovereignty, conflict, economy, identity, and colonialism among the Northern Cheyenne and Kiowa on the Plains, several groups of the Ojibwe, the Makah of the Northwest, and two groups of Iroquois. Featuring a new essay by the eminent senior scholar Anthony F. C. Wallace on recent ethnographic work he has done in the Tuscarora community, as well as provocative essays by junior scholars, Tribal Worlds explores how indigenous nationhood has emerged and been maintained in the face of aggressive efforts to assimilate Native peoples.

“With its compelling mix of themes and scholars, this book adds considerable breadth and depth to our understanding of issues related to Native American sovereignty in the United States and Canada.” — Michael E. Harkin, coeditor of Native Americans and the Environment: Perspectives on the Ecological Indian
