Originally from Detroit, Michigan and an enrolled member of the Te-Moak Tribe of Western Shoshone Indians of Nevada, Ned Blackhawk is an American Indian historian who works at the intersection of Native American and U.S. history. A graduate of McGill University, he holds graduate degrees in history from UCLA and the University of Washington, where he completed his doctorate in 1999. His work has received prominent association prizes and has been reviewed across the Anglophone world. Two of his important scholarly contributions are his monographic study of the early American West, Violence over the Land: Indians and Empires in the Early American West (Harvard, 2006) as well as a series of historiographical essays, including the recent “American Indians and the Study of U.S. History,” in the 2011 anthology, American History Now, edited for the American Historical Association by Eric Foner and Lisa McGirr.
