It’s a key role for Native representation at a prestigious and high-profile higher education institution.

For over a decade she has been working on repatriating remains under the Native American Graves Protection Act (NAGPRA). She was also just named to the National Museum and Library Services Board, which does advisory work with museums, libraries and information services throughout the country.
