Sandra Yellowhorse (Diné) works with Native American oral histories, and Indigenous educational planning. Her scholarly work engages Settler Colonial Studies, Critical Indigenous Studies, Critical Disability Studies, to focus on educational reform centered on Indigenous intellectual pedagogy, governance, language revitalization, expressive culture and kinship frameworks. Her background in law, tribal advocacy and political science grounds her research in the politics of recognition, belonging, discourse of ability/disability and the intersections of power as they relate to knowledge and social reproduction within the larger scope of global political economy and U.S. militarization.
