Native American and Indigenous Studies

My research focuses primarily on the history and culture of Indigenous people of North America from pre-contact to the early nineteenth century. Due to the proximity of Purdue University to the site of one of the most pivotal events in Native American history, a pan-Indian resistance movement founded by Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa at Prophetstown, I include an emphasis on local, regional, and midwestern Native history when possible. 

I am closely associated with Purdue’s Native American Education and Culture Center (NAECC) and the Sloan Foundation Indigenous Graduate Program.
