My interdisciplinary research and teaching examine the social, political, and historial intersections of Native American, United States, and international relations history in the twentieth centrury to the present, with an emphasis on sovereignty, self-determination, nationhood, cultural heritage, and global Indigenous rights, across a variety of fields, mediums, and forms. My work is dedicated to centering Indigenous traditional knowledge, applying decolonizing methodologies and Indigenous research methods, and implementing place-based education. Within the Honors College, History, and Ethnic Studies departments, I've developed undergraduate courses engaging students in decolonizing pedagogy and community based-research with Indigenous communities to ethcially document and disseminate Native American history. More broadly, my work is dedicated to developing frameworks and guidelines for the ethical and collaborative stewardship of cultural heritage collections in partnership with source community members and repositories.
