Fissure: A Life Between Cultures

An essay collection exploring bicultural belonging and identity, the role of language in identity, the effects of colonization, and the necessity for decolonization.The author looks into her settler heritage as the child of evangelical missionaries in the Navajo Nation, continuing through her later work in Diné bilingual-bicultural education, probing how colonization has been part of systemic racism in the US and the debt she may owe to the Indigenous culture that continues to play a part in her life.
