November 17, 2021

Today I welcome Kim Tallbear, author of Native American DNA: Tribal Belonging and the False Promise of Genetic Science.

Kim TallBear is a Professor in the Faculty of Native Studies, University of Alberta, and Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples, Technoscience, and Society. She is a citizen of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate in South Dakota. Dr. TallBear is the author of the book Native American DNA: Tribal Belonging and the False Promise of Genetic Science. Building on her research on the role of science in settler colonialism, TallBear also studies the roles of the overlapping ideas of “sexuality” and “nature” in colonization of Indigenous peoples. She is a regular commentator in US, Canadian, and UK media outlets on issues related to Indigenous peoples, science, technology, and Indigenous sexualities. She is a regular panelist on the weekly podcast, Media Indigena. She tweets on these topics and more at @KimTallBear. Her research websites include www.IndigenousSTS.com and www.re-lab.ca. You can also follow her occasional posts on her Substack newsletter, Unsettle: Indigenous affairs, cultural politics & (de)colonization, https://kimtallbear.substack.com
