Producing Predators: Wolves, Work, and Conquest in the Northern Rockies
By targeting wolves and other wild carnivores for extermination,cattle ranchers disavowed the predatory labor of raising domesticanimals for slaughter, representing it instead as productive work.Meanwhile, federal agencies sought to purge the Blackfoots, Salish-Kootenais, and other indigenous peoples of their so-called “:predatory”:behaviors through campaigns of assimilation and citizenshipthat forcefully privatized tribal land and criminalized hunting andits related ritual practices. Despite these colonial pressures, Nativecommunities resisted and negotiated the terms of their dispossessionby representing their own patterns of work, food, and livelihood asproductive. By exploring predation and production as fluid culturallogics for valuing labor, rather than just a set of biological processes,Producing Predators offers a new perspective on the history of theAmerican West and the modern history of colonialism more broadly.
