I collaborate with the Blackfeet Nation in Montana and Hawaiian communities on Oʻahu and Hawaiʻi.
In Hawaiʻi, I am an archiving research assistant for Kaipuleohone, the University of Hawai‘i Digital Language Archive, and collaborating on an ongoing National Science Foundation grant with the Kaniʻāina project at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani College of Hawaiian Language. I also recently completed a collaboration with Noah Ha'alilio Solomon and Ka Wai Ola on a 12 month illustrated ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi monthly mini lessons.
