Zada Ballew


My research focuses on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Native America, particularly in the Great Lakes region. I am an enrolled citizen of the Pokégnek Bodéwadmik / Pokagon Band of the Potawatomi Indians and my work examines the sovereignty, representation, education, politics, and self-determination of our tribe.
