I am an historian at Mount Holyoke College, located in the Kwinitekw (Connecticut) River Valley.  In 2019 I will be joining the History faculty at Williams College.  I use my scholarship and teaching to build stronger understandings of Indigenous peoples--past and present--and the complex relationships they have developed with place, heritage, and colonization.  I explore the stories diverse communities tell about history, and how accountings of the past can assist us in creating more just and sustainable futures for humans and the earth.  

I live and work in the Native Northeast/New England.  I am committed to highlighting new approaches to this region as well as its far-reaching connections to North American and global communities.
