Nawa! Welcome. I am a citizen of the Pawnee nation, and I live in Lawrence, Kansas, with my family, two dogs (Sammie, a chocolate lab, and Mrs. Beasley, a pekingese) and two cats (Joe and Bowie, both tabbies). I write about culture, politics, Indian Country, and the list goes on. I enjoy thinking and reading.
From what I understand, my writing has appeared in a couple of anthologies. In addition, Indian Country Today and Last Real Indians have published my columns. Sometimes I am on the radio or in the newspapers, but mostly I write and jot notes on this blog, which began in 2008 as Last Woman (several LW posts are on this site). Interestingly, a Wall Street Journal reporter once favorably highlighted my work, although I am uncertain as to why since I am a staunch believer in Tribal Sovereignty.
More about me: I like coffee, guacamole, Tribal-based activists and advocates, my girlfriends, decolonization, and funk music.
There is always the fine print, and here is mine:
