This talk will look into the ethnographic research Professor Trevor Reed conducted on the topic of Indigenous identity appropriations—specifically how individuals who cannot otherwise claim Indigenous identity construct and perform affect-rich Indigenous personas in the urban pow-wow spaces of New York City.
Trevor Reed is an Associate Professor of Law in the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. He teaches Property, Copyright, Race and Intellectual Property, Federal Indian Law, Cultural Resources Law, and Intellectual and Cultural Property. Reed’s research resides at the intersection of Indigenous studies and intellectual property law. More precisely, his projects seek to explore the social impacts of intellectual property law on Indigenous people and their communities. His current scholarship focuses on the linkages between creative production and Native American sovereignty. His recent publications include Fair Use as Cultural Appropriation (California Law Review), Indigenous Dignity and the Right to be Forgotten (BYU Law review), and Creative Sovereignties (Journal of the Copyright Society). Forthcoming writings include Fabricating Indigeneity in the journal Anthropological Quarterly; an edited volume, Sovereign Aesthetics (with Jessica Bissett-Perea); and a law review article entitled Restorative Licensing.
