❝Mary Beth Jäger (Citizen Potawatomi) is a research analyst for the Native Nations Institute (NNI) at the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy at the University of Arizona. Mary Beth’s work at the UA’s NNI expands across a diverse range of indigenous governance areas. Some of those areas include tribal child welfare codes, tribal justice systems, evaluation of Native art exhibits and community development financial institutions. Recently, her research focuses on Indigenous Data Sovereignty and Indigenous food Sovereignty. She is a member of the research coordination team for the Indigenous Foods Knowledges Network , funded by the National Science Foundation (Award Number 1745499). Also, she assists in providing monthly updates about UA’s NNI work to the public. Jäger earned a BA at Carroll College in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and MSW focused in Social and Economic Development in Indigenous Communities from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. She hopes the research will strengthen Native people and nations relationships with each other and with the land and non-human kin.
