I study the intersection of race, space, and health in modern history. My dissertation recovers medicine’s role as a key site of contestation between Indigenous people, settlers, and the U.S. government between 1880 and 1934. I argue that the Kiowa, a tribal nation of the Great Plains, used both Indigenous and Western healing practices to sustain and reconstitute their communities through this era of settler occupation. My primary advisor is Margaret Humphreys, and my committee members include Juliana Barr, Adriane Lentz-Smith, Nicole Barnes, and Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote (UNC).
