University of North Dakota
Tribal Public Policy

Ashly is Hunkpapa Lakota from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, Lithuanian, and French Canadian studying criminal justice and American Indian studies. She created One Step Forward, a student-led mentorship program, for Native high school students in her community. Serving as the President of Indian Studies Association, she coordinates a weeklong event to educate North Dakotans on contemporary and historical Native issues. A McNair Scholar, her undergraduate research studies the trends in Native communities with regard to the criminal justice system and recidivism. Focusing on criminal justice reform, she takes a bottom-up approach which analyzes community efforts first. She plans to pursue a doctorate in criminal justice or Indigenous studies.
