Sarah Whitt (Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) is a scholar of Native American history and Indigenous experiences at the turn of the twentieth century. Her current project, False Promises: Race, Power, and the Chimera of Indian Assimilation, 1879-1934, is a cross-institutional analysis of adult American Indian confinement, punishment, and resistance in settler institutions. The Carlisle Indian School, Ford factory, and Canton Asylum are among the sites of Indigenous presence she examines in this work.
