I am a professional archaeologist for over 20 years that has worked at sites throughout the United States and the world.  I am currently the tribal archaeologist for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.  I also teach archaeology/anthropology classes at Sitting Bull College and am a historic interpretive guide at On-A-Slant Mandan Indian Village at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in Mandan, North Dakota.  I have been engaged in teaching youth about the science of archaeology since AD 2000.
