I am currently the Indigenous Services Librarian and Liaison Librarian for Anthropology, Native Studies and Social Work at the University of Manitoba where I am also a member of the Implementation Committee for the University of Manitoba’s National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, which will provide access to the records of Canada’s Truth and Residential Commission on Indian Residential Schools.

I am the President of Manitoba Library Association and the Moderator for Library and Literacy Services for Indigenous Peoples of Canada Network for the Canadian Library Association.

I hold a B.A. (Anthropology) and M.L.I.S. First Nations Concentration from UBC. I am from Tsesk iye (Crow) Clan of the Tahltan First Nation located in Northern BC, the Yukon and Alaska.

I am dedicated to the preservation of Indigenous knowledge, culture and cultural material in a variety of mediums for future generations. I contribute by being actively involved in promoting Indigenous libraries and archives as well as identifying and making recommendations on library and information needs of Indigenous peoples through involvement in local, national and international professional associations.
