Maxie Elizabeth Ruan, Reporter
My name is Maxie Ruan and I am studying Journalism
at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. I am also pursuing a minor in
American-Indian studies. Throughout my academic career, I have chosen to write
about and for tribal communities. I have covered an array of topics pertaining
to Native American life and culture, and hope to cover many more. When I’m not
writing or researching, I can usually be found pulling espresso shots at my
part-time job as a barista. In the future, I hope to become a teacher, working
in tribal communities.
Darcie Little Badger, Editor
I'm a biological oceanographer and writer.
I earned my bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 2010 and am now
completing my PhD at Texas A&M University. When I'm not reading or working
on my dissertation, I enjoy writing speculative fiction inspired by Lipan
Apache culture. It is a privilege to contribute to the Lipan Post.
