I am an ethnographer and cultural anthropologist interested in creative and innovative ways to implement critical Indigenous theory into museum spaces and practices. My research and scholarship has focused on oral histories, museum studies, contemporary Indigenous art, and critical Indigenous theory. Currently, I am developing new research and projects that build upon my experiences collaborating with Indigenous artists and community members to address ideas and topics of central importance to Indigenous community members in New York. I also serve as an elected board member of the Council for Museum Anthropology.
