Research Interest: Fascinated by the juxtaposition of
cultures in the Southwest, I have visited pueblos of New Mexico
and Arizona, which led to an interest in pictographs, petroglyphs,
literature, art and current life on the reservations of the West,
Northwest and into Alaska. I have been an ardent student at the
Crow Canyon Institute in Cortez, Colorado, since 1996, and I continue
studying Cross Cultural Communications and Native American studies.
