Doug Kiel, Northwestern University, is publishing Bleeding Out: Histories and Legacies of 'Indian Blood', in The Great Vanishing Act: Blood Quantum and the Future and Native Nations (K. Ratteree and N. Hill, 2017). Here is the abstract.
This essay examines the origins of the blood quantum system of racial registration in Native American communities, evaluates arguments for and against its continuation, and identifies potential alternatives for reconciling sovereign Indigenous nationhood with racialized conceptions of indigeneity.
