Call for panelists: "Sovereignty in Practice: Local Defenses of Native Land" at Ethnohistory 2017 (Winnipeg, Canada)

I am seeking participants for a panel at Ethnohistory in October 2017. Titled “Sovereignty in Practice: Local Defenses of Native Land,” this panel will include geographically and temporally diverse papers that explore local negotiations over Native territory and sovereignty. While sovereignty is often seen as a matter of recognition by high-level federal or imperial authorities, Native territorial and political integrity is also produced, claimed, and defended at the local level.
