I am interested in "radicalism" among urban Native Americans in Arizona and how they assert their Indigenous identity through activism. I am also interested in how reservation Indians view those in the cities, away from their traditional communities.

I earned my BA in History from West Texas A & M in 2007 and my MA in History with an graduate minor in American Indian Studies from the University of Wyoming. My thesis, "Remembering the War: Northern Arapaho Military Experiences and the Provider Ethos Since 1950," utilized ethnohistorical and oral history methods to understand how Northern Arapaho veterans understood their service in the United States military. I also worked with the Northern Arapaho Nation's Language Revitalization Program. As an undergraduate I presented the papers "From Hell: A Morass of Half-Truth, Rumor and Downright Lie" which discussed problems with "Edutainment" and popular history and "Race Matters: The Importance of Race in U.S.- Latin American Relations," which commented on the racist nature of U.S. foreign policy with Latin America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In 2009, my paper "'We Will Care for Our People Because We Love Them': Northern Arapaho Military Service and the Provider Ethos, 1850-1950," was awarded "Best Graduate Paper" at the Phi Alpha Theta Colorado Regional Conference in Laramie, Wyoming.
