Megan Alvarado-Saggese is Assistant Professor of Native American and Indigenous Studies at Fort Lewis College. Her teaching and research focus on Indigenous artistic practice in the Americas, bringing Latin American Indigenous visual cultures into conversation with Native American scholarship.
Taking a hemispheric approach to Indigenous studies, Dr. Alvarado-Saggese looks at intersections and resonances within Indigenous intellectual thought and strategies of resistance across the Americas. She is currently engaged in a research project that critically reconsiders the political influence of indigenismo on Latin American modernist art.
