Great Lakes: Ho-Chunk, Navajo, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Purdue University

My name is Brady TwoBears Jr. I am an enrolled member of the Ho-Chunk Nation (Woonąǧire Wąąkšik) and I am also a part of the Navajo Nation (Todích’íí’nii) as well as the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. I grew up in both Flagstaff and the Navajo reservation in a town called Birdsprings. I am a first-year master’s student in environmental science at the University of Arizona with a focus on arid and semi-arid soils. I am conducting my research on the carbon cycling and carbon/nitrogen dynamics of the Red Rock soils located near Tucson, AZ. I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Purdue University, also majoring in environmental science. My goal is to be able to work with both the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) as well as tribes in the southwest. My interest is in soil conservation and utilizing healthy soils to improve agricultural systems. I envision implementing a comprehensive approach that combines sustainable agriculture and improved soil management techniques.
