Dr. Heather J. Shotton
Associate Professor of
Native American Studies at University of Oklahoma
Dr. Heather Shotton’s work combines the use of visual and oral narratives to tell the stories and broaden our understanding of Indigenous women and their experiences as scholars in colonized academic institutions.
Indigenous scholar sisterhood practices are ways of living the implications of academic research. By reclaiming academic spaces through collective sisterhood, indigenous women empower themselves as scholars to survive academia and serve their communities.
