Field Experience

For over 20 years I have worked as an Archaeologist & Cultural Resources Consultant throughout Arizona, Utah, Colorado, & New Mexico. I conduct site mapping, architectural condition assessments, site conservation, pedestrian survey, and technical report writing. In addition, I also provide a Hopi perspective for various projects, exhibits and public education programs.

I attended Northern Arizona University, where I earned both my B.A. and M.A. in Cultural Anthropology. My professional experience includes working for the National Park Service, The Hopi Tribe, The Museum of Northern Arizona, and Crow Canyon Archaeological Center

I also work as a River & Backpacking Guide, leading day hikes, tours and multi-day backpacking and river trips across Northeastern Arizona and Southeastern Utah. I currently work for Ancient Wayves River & Hiking Adventures and Tsekooh Outfitters both offering river and backpacking trips in Southeastern Utah and other regions.

I seek to provide an understanding of the longevity and connections that Hopi People maintain with the landscapes of the American Southwest. Combining my academic training and cultural background, I strive to achieve this understanding through Archaeological Fieldwork, Creative Writing, Public Education & Outdoor Recreation.

Kwah-kwah! Thank You!
