My research follows from the position that acknowledging archaeology’s role in the development and implementation of European and American colonial projects and associated dispossession of Indigenous communities confers a scholarly responsibility to critically examine contemporary archaeological practice. To that end, I draw on Indigenous, collaborative, and post-colonial archaeologies to help create interpretively rich, epistemically diverse, and socially beneficial research. This commitment guides my work with and for Native American communities in Pacific Northwest, primarily Washington and Oregon.
