Ryan Hall is the author of Beneath the Backbone of the World: Blackfoot People and the North American Borderlands, 1720-1877, published by the University of North Carolina Press in 2020. Beneath the Backbone of the World tells the story of the Blackfoot (Niitsitapi) people who lived and controlled a large region of what is today the U.S. and Canadian Great Plains. Dr. Hall explores how the Blackfoot people were able to hold onto their positions of power within the borderlands as both European and American colonizers encroached on their lands for over a century.
