Boozhoo! (Hello in the Ojibwe language). I am Dr. Lisa Poupart. I am an enrolled member of the Lac Du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Anishinabe (Ojibwe).

Currently I am an Associate Professor of Humanistic Studies, First Nation Studies and Womens Studies at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. I also serve as the chair and advisor of the First Nation Studies program. My scholarly publications and research are concerned with social problems in American Indian reservation and urban communities. My primary research interest is concerned with internalized oppression in American Indian communities and the social problems that stem from this phenomenon including domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, addictions, and juvenile delinquency. I also serve as a consultant on issues concerning American Indian domestic violence and juvenile delinquency with the Department of Justice and National Institute of Justice. I am currently involved with a number of state and national initiatives to standardize First Nation Studies curriculum and core knowledge. I hold a Doctorate of Philosophy in Justice Studies from Arizona State University with a concentration in American Indian law and federal Indian policy.

Education: B.S., M.S., UW-Milwaukee; Ph.D., Arizona State
