From [ her website]: "I am an Associate Professor and Associate Director of the Digital Technology and Culture program in the Department of English and Director of Digital Projects at the Plateau Center, Native American Programs at Washington State University. My work explores the intersections of cultural heritage, traditional knowledge, intellectual property rights, the ethics of openness, and the use of digital technologies in and by indigenous communities globally. I have worked in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory, Australia over the last decade with Warumungu community members on a range of projects including a book, an interactive [ website], and a community archive. My collaborations with the Warumungu focused on alliance-making in cross-cultural projects.

I am the Director of both the [ Plateau Peoples' Web Portal], a collaboratively curated site of Plateau cultural materials and [ Mukurtu CMS]: a free and open source content management system and digital archive built around the particular needs of indigenous peoples globally."
