This talk shares my journey as a Native feminist and anthropologist and my two current research projects—Critical Mission Studies and Red Power.  First, I discuss my involvement with UCSC education colleagues creating curriculum about the California missions from an Indigenous perspective.  Second, I talk about my work developing a Native women’s version of Red Power based on interviews and archival work regarding Native women of the Alcatraz Occupation and afterward.
