Andrew Dietzel recently received his doctorate in history at Central Michigan University. There, he teaches about Indigenous ethnohistories, with an emphasis on their adaptability, resiliency, and resurgence over time. As a researcher, he is interested in the functions of settler-colonialisms, and the unique and strategic ways Indigenous people subverted hegemony and preserved their sociocultural identities. He explores this in relation to the Haudenosaunee or Iroquois in his book manuscript, Resisting the Settler-State: Enunciations of Haudenosaunee Autonomy and Indigeneity from 1898–1924, which is under contract with SUNY Press.
