Catherine Costley


After growing up in a small town in western Massachusetts, Catherine attended and graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont. She taught at a high school on the border of the Navajo Nation in northwestern New Mexico. Catherine is now in her fourth year of a Ph.D. program in History, with a focus on Native nations and reservation border towns in the Four Corners region of the Southwest. When not reading books or writing papers, you can find her hiking in the mountains or exploring the desert!
