Department: Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies
Official title: Associate Professor and Department Head, IRES
Why you're part of the advisory committee: My scholarship, teaching, and service are all rooted in Native life. I try to use my position to create structures that support Native people inside and outside the academic world; building a Native American and Indigenous studies program here at University of Oregon in Kalapuya ilihi has been one way to do that.
What you like to do outside work: Outside of work, I like to root for the Packers, play sjima, basketball, and any other recreational sports, hang out with family and friends, do bad art, bad carpentry, and bad gardening, try out new recipes, fight the power, dream and scheme, live that good life.
