AboutMy research focuses on preservation of traditional knowledge and investigates connections between local diets, biosemiotics and resilience. I am involved in the collaborative digital archiving project “Making History Accessible” with the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and Dr. D. Bates. I am working on the proposal for preserving their knowledge about land, resources, history, and oral traditions by combining the de-colonizing mapping technology and indigenous research methods.
