Join the American Indian Resource Center for lunch to welcome Dr. Sheilah Nicholas to the University of Utah campus. Dr. Nicholas (Hopi) is a visiting professor in the Department of Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies at the University of Arizona. Her research focus includes: Indigenous/Hopi language maintenance and reclamation, Indigenous language ideologies and epistemologies, the intersection of language, culture and identity, and Indigenous language teacher education.
Dr. Sheilah Nicholas' research focuses on Indigenous/Hopi language maintenance and reclamation, Indigenous language teacher preparation, and cultural and American Indian education. The lecture will provide an increased understanding of the ancient and contemporary culture, specifically the language status, of the Hopi; exploring the connection of language and culture in Hopi identity development.
