About the Author

Clint Carroll is assistant professor of American Indian studies at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.


"Clint Carroll tackles the idea that tribal sovereignty is at odds with local and federal efforts to protect the environment and instead argues that indigenous governments are significant environmental actors, deeply invested in retaining Native lands and resources. This book is perfect for classroom use and for anyone interested in political ecology as it relates to indigenous struggles for self-determination."-Circe Sturm, The University of Texas at Austin

"Carroll's research. especially considering the culturally sensitive nature of the subject, is an excellent example of participatory, social justice-oriented research done well."-H-Net "Roots of Our Renewal is a significant contribution to understanding how past and present interaction with Euro-American society structures current American Indian affairs."-Western Historical Quarterly"[Roots of Our Renewal] presents valuable insight for researchers intending to work with Indigenous tribal entities and acknowledges the potential challenges involved."-Ethnohistory"Clint Carroll does a masterful job of interconnecting many different and complex threads across culture, history, politics, social relationships, plants, and land."-Great Plains Research"More appealing than other reference books. I recommend this book to anyone interested in sustaining traditional knowledge and practices."-HerbalGram
