Angela Parker (2009-2010) is an enrolled member of the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation (Mandan, Hidatsa) and also participates at her father’s reservation, Rocky Boy (Cree).  She holds a PhD from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Her research interests focused on Northern Plains tribes and the lived experience of the federal-tribal relationship during the Reservation Era (1880s-1934).  Her dissertation project examines the years from the Indian Reorganization Act to the early 1960s on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, when the Fort Berthold community lost the central portion of their land base due to a massive dam built by the US Corps of Engineers.
