Celebrating Native Heritage Month With A Talk On November 10

On Monday November 10 between 5:30p.m.-6:30p.m. at Colorado State University as part of Native Heritage Month I'll be speaking about the work I do here with a talk entitled “The Alaska Native Studies Blog” 
The Alaska Native Studies Blog began in the summer of 2013 as a platform for exploring Native Alaskan research in a public sphere. While there are many incredible scholars pursuing work in American Indian Studies the topic of Native Alaska is one that greatly calls for more exploration. Even though Alaska Natives possess 40 percent of the nation’s tribes and over 200 other quasi- sovereign entities we are underrepresented in the academy. The blog has been useful in publicly exploring Native history and culture as well as making connections with scholars who share this interest.
