Research Interest

My work focuses on the politics of indigeneity in the Americas, with particular attention to questions of land, territory, and rights. In the past, I have developed these interests through research on titling and demarcation of indigenous lands in eastern Nicaragua. I have recently shifted my work to Oaxaca, Mexico. This work is broadly informed by my longer involvement with indigenous rights, as both an advocate and a researcher, in Ecuador, Chile, Honduras, and the western United States. Much of that work further engages with the diversity of mapping practices used to advocate for recognition of indigenous land rights.
