I am Diné, an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation, and a descendant of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribes. I hold a Masters in Arts M.A. in Fine Arts in Integrated Arts in Education, and I am interested in ways to support our Montana education system with authentic, appropriate, and engaging lessons that teach about Indigenous values, contributions and innovations. Together with my wife Aspen, we own Xʷixʷilt, which translates to ‘alive and well’ in Salish. Together we have over 20 years combined experience in Tribal education.
