Eighteen Awesome Native Folks in STEM

In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Women of Silicon Valley asked Native folks of all genders in STEM to share their stories with our followers, and 18 scientists, technologists, and educators (very generously) obliged. These 18 people have submitted narratives of embracing Native identity, of decolonizing the whitewashed miseducation and misappropriation of Indigenous culture and histories, and of courageously striving to elevate both themselves and their communities within systems that have historically contributed to their erasure.

La Vie en Code

https://www.lavieencode.net/
I started as blog run by a baby dev fresh from being fired from my last job in customer service. Lots of people found my blog for whatever reason and began giving feedback and telling their own stories. I can tell you that it gets lonely working through the experience of teaching yourself to code. It can feel really isolating. We get nervous when we interact with others in the industry, and that heckin’ imposter syndrome kicks in hard. The result? We end avoiding the community that we so desperately need, especially in these trying times of the pandemic.

There's a lot working against us, I know. And you may feel like you have to work three times as hard as everyone else. Some of us come from suburbia, the city, or a reservation, and each origin has its own challenges. But what I've found—from speaking with many other Native American people to develop Natives Rising, reading Dr. Amanda Tachine's work on Navajo college students, and from working with the Friendship House Association of American Indians—is that for so many of us, the greatest barrier is psychological and emotional.

here aren’t a lot of role models, and there aren’t a lot of other individuals or people that Native youth—or anyone really, in the community, can look up to. And I think that becomes problematic, because one of the things that I think that can help propel young people to get interested—not just only in tech, but in the arts, and a whole swath of other areas in government, and other industries—is the power of being able to look at someone and say, “That person looks like me, and they also do something that I found to be interesting.”

Several years ago, Dezbah Hatathli's mother was killed in a preventable car accident when her vehicle slid on an icy road in northern Arizona during Thanksgiving weekend.Now, she has chosen a career where she hopes to prevent that kind of tragedy. Hatathli works as a test driver for Waymo, the self-driving car project from Google, which tests vehicles in metro Phoenix. Preventing accidents — most of which are caused by human error, not mechanical problems with cars — is one of the primary reasons Waymo is developing self-driving cars.

and-gracie-young

My name is Corey Ashley. I’m from Sanders, Arizona, a small Dine? community on the Navajo reservation. As a senior studying science, technology and society, I’m interested in finding ways to intersect my Diné identity with technology as a means of culture and language revitalization. My work at Stanford focuses on bringing voices to the table that haven’t traditionally had access to the ideation phase of new technologies. We need Natives in tech.

The Southeastern Indian people found their voices in this work. They are alive and well--still on their land!"--Hiram F. Gregory, coauthor of The Historic Indian Tribes of Louisiana: From 1542 to the Present "This collection fills a major void in our understanding of recent southern history by offering a wide-ranging selection of southern Indians a chance to speak for themselves, unfiltered, as they strike at the heart of identity: Indian identity, southern identity, and, ultimately, American identity."--Greg O'Brien, editor of Pre-removal Choctaw History: Exploring New Paths The history of Native Americans in the U.S. South is a turbulent one, rife with conflict and inequality.

If you want to know why American Indians have the highest rates of poverty of any racial group, why suicide is the leading cause of death among Indian men, why native women are two and a half times more likely to be raped than the national average and why gang violence affects American Indian youth more than any other group, do not look to history. There is no doubt that white settlers devastated Indian communities in the 19th, and early 20th centuries. But it is our policies today?denying Indians ownership of their land, refusing them access to the free market and failing to provide the police and legal protections due to them as American citizens?that have turned reservations into small third-world countries in the middle of the richest and freest nation on earth.

Drawing upon these Native American reminiscences reveals how young Indians responded to a system that attempted to eradicate the tribal codes that had nourished them. The Christian curriculum, the military-style discipline, the white staff of teachers and administrators, and the work-for-study demands were alien and bewildering to them, especially during their first days at the institutions.The former pupils recall myriad kinds of adaptability, resistance, motivation, and rejection, as well as the many problems readjusting to changing tribal life upon their return from school.

When DeSoto (in 1540) and later Juan Pardo (in 1567) marched through what was known as the province of Cofitachequi (which covered the southern part of todayOCOs North Carolina and most of South Carolina), the native population was estimated at well over 18,000. Most shared a common Catawba language, enabling this confederation of tribes to practice advanced political and social methods, cooperate and support each other, and meet their common enemy. The footprint of the Cofitachequi is the footprint of this book.a a The contemporary Catawba, Midland, Santee, Natchez-Kusso, Varnertown, Waccamaw, Pee Dee, and Lumbee Indians of North and South Carolina, have roots in pre-contact Cofitachequi.... Through interviews and a generous photograph montage stretching over two decades, Gene Crediford reveals the commonality and diversity among these people of Indian identity; their heritage, culture, frustrations with the system, joys in success of the younger generation, and hope for the future of those who come after them.

ABC-CLIO, LLC, 2016.

City-dwelling American Indians are part of both the ongoing ethnic history of American cities in the 20th and 21st centuries and the ancient history of American Indians. Today, more than three-quarters of American Indians live in cities, having migrated to urban areas in the 1950s because of influences such as the Termination and Relocation policy of the federal government, which was designed to end the legal status of tribes, and because of the draw of employment, housing, and educational opportunities. This book documents how North America was home to many ancient urban Indian civilizations and progresses to describing contemporary urban American Indian communities, lifestyles, and organizations.

Though many Americans might be aware of the Olympian and football Hall of Famer Jim Thorpe or of Navajo golfer Notah Begay, few know of the fundamental role that Native athletes have played in modern sports: introducing popular games and contests, excelling as players, and distinguishing themselves as coaches. The full breadth and richness of this tradition unfolds in Native Athletes in Sport and Society, which highlights the accomplishments of Indigenous athletes in the United States and Canada but also explores what these accomplishments have meant to Native American spectators and citizens alike.

Theirs is a story not so much of success but of resilience, of survivance, with each interview subject having marked their time and eventually becoming the change they wanted in the world.
