Brian studies religion, race, and law in (native) America. He understands religion as a social terrain on which people contest the meaning of human nature. As such, these claims serve to construct identity around in-groups and thus form out-groups. These dynamics are prevalent in urban, diaspora contexts where diverse sets of people interact. Brian's research focuses on these issues in the American Indian urban diaspora, where ceremony, art, and activism are renewing native cultural power.
