Háːʦò! (Kiowa in IPA) I received my B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Oklahoma in 2011 after a switch from foreign language education. I previously worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the Native American Languages Department. Through this appointment, I had the opportunity to volunteer with the SNOMNH Science in Action Day and The Oklahoma Native Youth Language Fair, and in May 2012, I participated as a mentor at the 2012 Oklahoma Breath of Life workshop. My research interests include Lexicography, Language Revitalization, Documentation and Description, Morphology, Phonetics and Phonology. For my thesis, I am working on an online dictionary of the Kiowa language to supplement the OU Kiowa Language courses. Currently, I work as an ESL teacher at OU’s Center for English as a Second Language.
