Title: Graduate Teaching Assistant
Education: B.A. in English – Writing with a Minor in Native American Studies
A young graduate student who is actively navigating my way through academia as a Native American student. As a graduate teaching assistant, my goal is to peak the interests of students and nurture any curiosity they may have about the NAS department and Native Americans. As a graduate student, my goal is to learn as much as I can in order to later utilize my experiences towards helping my own tribal community.
AREAS OF INTEREST & EXPERTISE:
I have an interest in exploring the creative outlets in which Native Americans have used to express their culture, history, and current state of affairs; and what these expressions mean in terms of tribal sovereignty and self-determination.
