About

121_2843 2

I’m an assistant professor of Anthropology  and affiliate faculty in American Indian Studies and Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Both my research and activism center around endangered language revitalization; language and digital domains; and the Two-Spirit community.

I’m a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and hail from NE Oklahoma (the part with hills, water, and trees).

Before joining the faculty at UIUC, I earned a PhD in Linguistics in 2013 from the University of Colorado, Boulder. I was the Henry Roe Cloud Fellow in American Indian Studies at  Yale University in 2011-2012 and the Lyman T. Johnson Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Kentucky in 2013-2014.
