Reviews

"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
