Myhal presentingEthnic Studies PhD student Natasha Myhal will present at the 2018 Native American Literature Symposium in Spirit Lake, MN on her Master's research. She draws from the mixed methods of Indigenous Studies and botany fieldwork to look comparatively at the field of ethnobotany and federal policy, focusing on the importance of medicinal plants and the impact of federal harvest policies. She seeks to use interdisciplinary methodologies from Environmental Studies, Cultural Geography, and Native American Studies to better understand Indigenous environmental practices.
