Dana J. Lee, Navajo Nation
University of New Mexico
Tribal Public Policy

Dana is a student at the University of New Mexico, double majoring in Native American studies and American studies. She is a member of the Navajo Nation and as a Diné woman and mother, is guided in the service and commitment to her Indigenous communities. Her engagement into service is participating with a local Indigenous liberation organization with on-the-ground campaigns, assisting in community gardening, and providing food and materials for unsheltered relatives (homeless). Her focus for her future is inspired by being a Mellon Mays fellow to continue research towards a doctor of philosophy and career in higher education.
