Stetson Kastengren is a citizen of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe and studies American federal Indian policy. His primary interests are the policies of the postbellum era, specifically the Dawes Allotment Act of 1887, and the political, social, and cultural events that led to its passage. His work examines the dual transits of power from Indian country to the metropole, and from the metropole to Indian country.
