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 of Geography and American Indian Studies at the University of Washington.
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 American Council of Learned Societies, the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, and the Ford Foundation Fellowship Program.
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.
