Native American and Indigenous Studies

My research focuses primarily on the history and culture of indigenous people from pre-contact to the early nineteenth century. My work includes studies of the impact of colonization on Native American women, the rise of indigenous nationalism and comparative studies of indigenous peoples and colonization. Due to the proximity of Purdue University to the site of one of the most pivotal events in Native American history, pan-Indian resistance movement founded by Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa at Prophetstown, my work also includes research into indigenous diasporas, resistance movements and forced relocations.

At Purdue I have the privilege of teaching Native American History and Culture, 19th Century Indian History, Native American Women’s History, Sovereign Nations and Global Indigenous History. I am closely associated with Purdue’s Native American Education and Culture Center and serve as Faculty Advisor for the Native American Student Association.
