Hello, My name is Cualnezca Tonantzin Miranda, I’m an Indigenous woman from the Yoeme, Blackfoot and Otomi Tribal Nations. I currently hold the title of Associate Director for the Native American Resource Center at American River College, where I focus on student programming and recently completed our Native student district-wide research project that explored the disproportionate impact on Native Students. And created the framework for the Tribal Relations Department and Tribal Sovereignty presidency committee.
I’m interested in restorative justice practices through an Indigenous healing lens, dismantling the school to prison pipeline, missing and murdered Indigenous women and voter suppression.
The need for like-minded people to collectively build a foundation that will assist all BIPOC is extremely important. I’m devoted to this work and hope we can work together soon, so our next seven generations can be liberated and never have to repeat these traumatic cycles.
