I am inspired by personal passion and this is evident in my scholarly life. My research focuses on the politics of difference as well as the ways these identities are represented/misrepresented in law and policy. My study on sex trafficking of Native peoples explored the disconnect between federal definitions and the lived experiences of Native people, as well as the potential of using Native self-determined legal solutions to address the issue. I engage "tribal feminist critical race theory informed by anti-settler colonialist sentiments" to broadly support community activism and welcomes opportunities to talk about it. My other recent projects examine the connections between contemporary targeted exploitation, Native-determined community justice, Settler Country legal racialization and the law.

I am planning to organize a round table at the 2018 AAA meetings on "Women's Rights Are Human Rights: How Do Anthropologists Contribute?" Would you be interested in joining? Here is a summary:
Human rights, broadly defined, relate to all aspects of life and are affirmed in numerous international treaties, declarations, and agreements, including the recently developed “sustainable development goals” framework. The purpose of this roundtable is to discuss ways that the research, practice, or applied experience of anthropologists can and does promote or support the protection of women’s human rights.
Hope to hear from you soon (4/16 is the deadline),
