Dr. Jill Doerfler (White Earth Anishinaabe) is an associate professor and the department head of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Her primary area of scholarly interest is American Indian, specifically Anishinaabe, identity with a political focus on citizenship. She has been involved in constitutional reform efforts with the White Earth Nation since 2007. Her most recent book, Those Who Belong: Identity, Family, Blood, and Citizenship Among the White Earth Anishinaabeg (2015), examines staunch Anishinaabe resistance to racialization and the complex issues surrounding tribal citizenship and identity.
