James TreatMy research focuses on American Indian ways of knowing, especially in the wake of imperial modernity. On a more theoretical level, I am interested in the human ecology of indigenous societies as a critique of industrial civilization.

I write literary nonfiction in various genres – reflexive scholarship, narrative history, topical essays, and found poetry. One of my recent projects involved penning a monthly column on tribal traditions published in the Muscogee Nation News, reprinted by a dozen other periodicals, and archived at Mvskoke Country. I am currently completing a book manuscript titled A Sort of Strange Land: Poems Found in Indian Territory. You can learn more about my work by following the links below and to the right.
