Hatitoh caaki wiyeefa | ᎣᏏᏲ ᏂᎦᏓ | hello everyone! My family is enrolled with the Shawnee Tribe and Cherokee Nation, making my research personal, familial, and communal. I'm passionate about language learning, identity formation, language reclamation, and cultural education for Native American/American Indian/Indigenous communities and use my experiences coupled with community knowledge to (re)claim Indigenous perspectives, histories, and knowledge. I have experience as an educator, community member, researcher, and collaborator. Niyaawe | ᏩᏙ | thanks!
