I'm a doctoral candidate in Linguistics
at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I originally hail from
and did my undergrad at Oklahoma State University (Go Pokes!). I received
my MA from CU with a graduate certificate in Culture, Language
(CLASP). In 2011-2012, I was on fellowship at Yale University as the Henry Roe Cloud Fellow.
My research is in Linguistic Anthropology and Native Studies in the linguistic negotiation of contemporary indigenous identity. I am particularly
interested in language revitalization and
documentation in indigenous communities and how process of globalization affect these movements of
linguistic reclamation. I am also interested in identity negotiation in individuals or groups
with multiple minority statuses and the intersections of langauge, gender/sexuality, and ethnicity.
