My research interests are in Native American History, especially federal boarding schools and the long-term effects of assimilation and "civilization." I am also interested in Sherman Institute as a carceral space and its relation to California Mission history. I am an enrolled tribal member of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma.
