Broadly defined, my research interests pertain to the historical development of Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I am most interested in studying Native American attempts at resistance and accommodation to cultural assimilation following removal to Indian Territory. In my future academic pursuits, I would like to study the development of the Cherokee educational system following removal, with specific attention given to the implications of Anglo-American educational curriculum on Cherokee language and culture.
