Sovereign Bodies Institute, Annita Lucchesi

Danielle Orr

Doctoral candidate, Annita Lucchesi joined Danielle Orr in studio for the KHSU Magazine to talk about her work locally and the Sovereign Bodies Institute. Lucchesi graduated with a BA in Geography  from UC Berkeley in 2012 and received her MA in American Studies from Washington State University in 2016,  bringing her to research interests in Indigenous and critical cartography, Indigenous feminisms, postcolonial geographies and Indigenous research methodologies. Annita maintains one of the largest databases of cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada and the United States. The data is used not only in her own work, but is also made available to tribal advocates, activists, policy makers, service providers and community leaders.  You may explore the Seventh Generation Fund as well for continued education and information.
