R. Warren Metcalf

Associate Professor


Professor Warren Metcalf is the author of Termination's Legacy: The Discarded Indians of Utah and is a scholar of twentieth-century Native American history. Focusing on the mixed-blood Ute Indians of Utah, this book examines the motives of those who sponsored the termination policy and its complicated impact on the native population. He is now at work on two book-length projects: one focuses on the mixed-blood tradition in Oklahoma, and the other examines the relationship between Mormons and Native Americans. Professor Metcalf teaches a wide-range of courses, including the U.S. Survey, a variety of offerings in Native American history, the graduate "Methods" seminar, and a popular course titled "Twentieth-Century America in Film." He received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University.
