Aaniin, greetings, and welcome to my website. I am a historian of early America. My research centers on American Indian, environmental, and Great Lakes history. I received my Ph.D. in history from Michigan State University and my B.A. in history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently I am serving as an Associate Editor/Researcher for the “The Pioneer Girl Project” with the South Dakota Historical Society Press. This fall I will begin a one-year tenure as a NASNTI Post Doctoral Fellow at the University of Minnesota, Morris.
