Background note

David W. Dinwoodie (1965-) is an American sociocultural and linguistic anthropologist specialising in Indigenous-settler contact, historical consciousness, Indigenous identity, land claims (for which he has provided expert testimony), and other related areas, in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. After a B.A. at the University of Montana (1986), he attended the University of Chicago (M.A. 1987, Ph.D. 1996) studying under Raymond D. Fogelson. In 1989 he co-taught Navajo at the Native American Education Services College. While gaining his Ph.D. he lectured at Indiana University (1993-1995), and took up a position at the University of New Mexico's Department of Anthropology in 1996, where he has remained since. He has served as editor for Anthropological Linguistics (1993-1998), Journal of Anthropological Research (2003-), and Ethnohistory (2011-2013). His Phillips Fund grant, awarded 1992 while he was at the University of Chicago, was titled "Verbs of Saying in Chilcotin Historical Narratives", contributing to a wide range of research on Tsilhqotʼin ethnohistories that includes his 2002 book "Reserve Memories: The Power of the Past in a Chilcotin Community" (University of Nebraska Press).
