CNAIR supports faculty working in any discipline whose research engages Native American & Indigenous peoples and/or who center Indigenous research and Native American and Indigenous Studies methodologies. Fellows participate in CNAIR’s community by attending Center talks and workshops, including regular lunch seminars and talks by invited speakers, by presenting about their work at the annual research symposium held in the spring.
CNAIR Faculty Fellowship
- Doug Kiel (History) will work on his book, Unsettling Territory: Oneida Indian Resurgence and Anti-Sovereignty Backlash, which highlights how enacting decolonial ambitions transforms relationships between Indigenous nations and the United States on local and national scales, highlighting the structural limitations placed upon projects of Indigenous community rebuilding. Unsettling Territory tells the story of how one Native American community, the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, bought back so much of their treaty- guaranteed land throughout the twentieth century that the neighboring non-Indian communities perceived the tribe as a threat to their own municipality’s existence.
