Clint Carroll is an associate professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, he works closely with Cherokee people in Oklahoma on issues of land conservation and the perpetuation of land-based knowledge and ways of life. Clint’s current projects include co-directing (with a group of elders and wisdom-keepers) a land education program for five Cherokee students and serving as principal investigator on a related study about Cherokee plant gathering access in rural northeastern Oklahoma. His book, Roots of Our Renewal: Ethnobotany and Cherokee Environmental Governance (2015, University of Minnesota Press), explores how tribal natural-resource managers navigate the material and structural conditions of settler colonialism, as well as how recent efforts in cultural revitalization are informing such practices through traditional forms of decision making and local environmental knowledge.
