About Douglas

From 2020-2023, I served as Program Director for InHerit (Indigenous Heritage Passed to Present []), an organization that is affiliated with the Research Labs of Archaeology at UNC-Chapel Hill. InHerit works with Indigenous communities to document silenced stories and empower people to reshape cultural narratives. With InHerit I worked as part of a project titled “Amplifying Native Voices in North Carolina History,” a partnership with the Museum of the Southeast American Indian at UNC-Pembroke. This project develops resources for K-12 North Carolina teachers and students that incorporate Native perspectives and shed light on Indigenous histories often underrepresented in school curriculum.
