What's Exciting

The book project!! Working with my Native colleagues at universities across the US, we have put together an edited volume called American Indian Business that highlights concepts and issues for American Indian businesses. I am also excited that the book will be published by UW Press and feature a local Native business called Eighth Generation out of Pike Place Market on its cover! The publication date is Autumn 2017 so watch for more info.

Recent Activities

I recently attended the Enduring Legacies Native Cases Insitute hosted by Barbara Smith from The Evergree State College. Over three days we explored teaching and creating Native Cases for the classroom - I especially liked the case titled The Twilight Saga and the Quileute Indian Tribe: Opportunity or Cultural Exploitation?. Evergreen has a wonderful repository of Native Case Studies that can be searched to find relevant cases.
