State Power and Cherokee Resurgence after the Dust Bowl

Roots of Our Renewal

University of Minnesota Press

In chapter 3, “The ‘Greening’ of Oklahoma,” I discuss how more recent politics have shaped the Cherokee Nation environment, including fire suppression policies in the 1930s and the development of Oklahoma state tourism. I look in depth at the legacy of the federal allotment policy in relation to the ability of Cherokees to access resources. In this context, I also describe the resurgence of the Cherokee Nation as a political entity and its subsequent development of sophisticated environmental departments.
