About the Author

Kim TallBear is associate professor of Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin.


"Native American DNA is a book of far wider scope than its title, establishing the author as a leading authority on the topic. The politics of tribal DNA is but the starting point of a complex analysis that encompasses the whole framework in which DNA is appropriated in the study of human populations. Molecular geneticists, science studies researchers, legal scholars-and of course Native Americans-will find their horizons considerably broadened and newly engaged."-Troy Duster, New York University"Native American DNA is a gracefully written, powerfully argued, and urgently needed examination of indigenous identity and politics after the genomic turn. This is pathbreaking work."-Alondra Nelson, Columbia University
"Provocative and incisive. . . Native American DNA is undoubtedly a key text."-Medical Anthropology Quarterly"TallBear's description of the science of DNA testing is remarkably clear, and her skepticism about its claims is well founded."-Journal of American History"Essential reading for researchers in all fields of Indigenous studies."-American Indian Quarterly
