I have a wide array of interests including community outreach, education policy, and language activism. I am currently the Project Director for Lakȟól’iyapi Wahóȟpi/Wičhákini Owáyawa Lakota Immersion Nest at Sitting Bull College (Fort Yates, ND).

I graduated from McGill University in 2015 with an M.A. in linguistics. My thesis can be found on this page.
