Despite the centrality of blood quantum to American Indian identity, there are few studies that explore it from a historical perspective. "Those Who Belong" explores four significant questions: how White Earth Anishinaabeg understood blood quantum in the early twentieth century, how it was employed and manipulated by the U.S. government, how it came to be the sole requirement for tribal citizenship in the 1960s, and how it was replaced with lineal descent in 2013.
