I am a dAXunhyuu (Eyak, Alaska Native) geographer interested in the intersections of coloniality, race, and indigeneity as read through aesthetic and literary contributions, archival evidences, and experiential embodied knowledges. I am an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Geography Department and American Indian Studies program.
I received my Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in Comparative Ethnic Studies and my Master's Degree from the same department. I hold a BA in English Literature and the Environment from the University of Alaska, Southeast. My research has been funded by the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, and the Ford Foundation
I serve on an all-Native women advisory board for the Eyak Cultural Foundation, a non-profit that organizes annual language and cultural revitalization gatherings, and directs a Cultural Mapping Project in their homelands of Eyak, Alaska. I am also an Editor as part of the Editorial Collective at the journal ACME: An International Journal for Critical Geographies. Please contact me if you have questions regarding ACME submissions.
