Christie Poitra (Turtle Mountain) is the Assistant Director of the Michigan State University Native American Institute. Her views on the importance of action research have been shaped by her academic and professional experiences in different aspects of the K-12 education sector, and work with Indigenous communities. She believes research with Indigenous communities and reservation schools should be an iterative, collaborative and empowering process. Her scholarship, service and teaching interests are defined by three interrelated ideas. The first area centers on how current state, federal and school policy contexts affect Indigenous education experiences. This line of inquiry explores the partnerships between tribes and reservation/reservation-adjacent K-12 schools, and the unintended ways that district, state and federal policies shape the practices of instructional leaders in reservation/reservation adjacent K-12 schools. The second area of research examines the ways that tribal leaders respond to internal and external political climates through educational policy and program development. The third line of research looks at how tribal leaders’ perceptions and definitions of human capital need shape educational investments in their communities.
