Hunters and bureaucrats: Power, knowledge, and the restructuring of Aboriginal-state relations in the southwest Yukon, Canada
Given the increasing politicization of indigenous peoples and today's climate of "enlightened" race relations, many states are seeking to restructure their relationship with the aboriginal populations within their borders. In Canada, efforts are underway to develop processes that more fully and fairly incorporate aboriginal people into the Canadian state. These efforts are intended to empower First Nation people by granting them a significant role in the governance of their own lands and people. On the face of it, this seems a vast improvement over many of the racist and assimilationist policies of the past. In this dissertation, however, I argue that for First Nation people in Canada, this new relationship with...

Bridging two worlds: Government-to-government between the Department of Defense and federally recognized tribes in Athabascan Country, Alaska
Although tribes are recognized as "domestic dependent nations" with inherent sovereignty over their own affairs, the U.S. government has accepted various trust responsibilities such as protecting tribal rights and resources. Based on this "trust" relationship, the Department of Defense (DoD) has been working to conduct meaningful government-to-government consultation on projects/policies that may have implications for tribes. This study addresses the question "Have government-to-government relations changed since the publishing of DoD's American Indian/Alaska Native Policy?" and documents the experiences of those involved in the process. Methodology used is solely qualitative in nature consisting of analyzing policy...
Knowledges that 'travel': Indigenous-Western expertise and the 'nature' of wildlife management in the Alaskan boreal forest
In partnership with the community of Huslia, Alaska, I analyzed both the practices of wildlife biology and Koyukon traditional management practices for two species whose distributions include the Koyukuk-Nowitna National Wildlife Refuge Complex: moose (Alces alces gigas ) and greater white-fronted geese (Anser albifrons frontalis ). Both species are important for subsistence and sport hunting, but their ranges and migrations necessitate different scales and structures of management. Moose require state-wide cooperation, while geese also require national and international scales of management. Using ethnographies of scientific practice, observation, and semi-structured interviews, I explain how different groups of...
