Our Team

Director Dr. Heidi Kiiwetinepinesiik Stark and Associate Director Dr. Jeff Corntassel

Our community is ever-growing and evolving. We provide a space for faculty, staff, students and alumni to partner and engage in ethical Indigenous-focused research.

One of our strengths is supporting students in learning. Many students have worked with us, often in more than one role, such as research assistants, graduate students, volunteers, teaching assistants, and fellowships.

We welcome you to visit our office in you're interested in getting involved.
