About the Author

Renya K. Ramirez is Assistant Professor of American Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.


"Renya K. Ramirez makes compelling use of ethnographic interviews to explore broad issues of cultural citizenship and transnational migration. Her analysis of Laverne Roberts's notion of 'hubs' connecting Native people across time and space is a significant contribution to the all too sparse scholarship on urban American Indian communities."--Susan Applegate Krouse, Director of the American Indian Studies Program, Michigan State University
