I am from Flathead Indian Reservation in Arlee, Montana. I completed a M.S. in Geology and an Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Montana. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Teaching at the University of British Columbia in the Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science Department. I am also a researcher and co-founder of Tribal Research Specialist, providing ethnographic and educational research and consultation. From 2008 to 2020, I served as faculty at Salish Kootenai College where I co-developed their Hydrology program and founded the Indigenous Research Center on its campus. I continue to advance understandings of Indigenous research methodologies from Salish philosophical commitments with an emphasis on environmental and geoscience disciplines.
