I was recently awarded a number of distinctions at the University of Texas at Arlington, including the George Wolfskill Award for Outstanding Graduate Paper and a second-year award of the Hall-Kohfeldt Scholarship in American Indian and Southwestern Studies. Attached is the Fall 2012 issue of Fronteras that profiles my 2012 Hall-Kohfeldt Scholarship. I was also recipient of the 2012 Jenkins and Virginia Garrett Endowed Fellowship in the History of Cartography. I thank my family and tribal citizens who have supported my efforts to continue to do the research that resulted in these awards.
