Faculty Name

Dr. Innes' primary interest lies in linguistic anthropology. She has been active in language retention and revitalization work with members of the Muskogee and Seminole Nations of Oklahoma, the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma, and the Comanche Tribe of Oklahoma. Her work has been an attempt to help tribes retain their language as a resource for future generations. Currently, she is interested in working with members of the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes on the Wind River Reservation on whatever language programs they deem appropriate.
