Dr. Skinstad will share from her experiences navigating the relationship that Native American communities have with the federal government due to their very difficult past, and the ways in which researchers have to continue to educate the Western world to change their approach when trying to offer support to these communities. Native communities have proven their incredible resilience throughout the centuries since this country was colonized, and they deserve to have their voices heard and their ways be put into practice.
