Abstract

This project explores the ties between food and indigenous land claims, treaty rights, and issues of sovereignty, utilizing the White Earth Indian Reservation (located in northwestern Minnesota) as a case study. Based off of fieldwork conducted during the summer of 2016 and March of 2017, this research aims to draw a direct link between foodways and notions of Native American sovereignty, both as they are conceptualized and actually practiced.
