An Advocate for Change

with Marisa Page

Marisa Page is a citizen of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and a descendant from the Ponca and Comanche tribes. She currently works for First Nations Development Institute, and lives in New Mexico. She is an advocate for Indigenous peoples throughout the United States and around the world.

Our conversation with her centered on what it is like to be an Indigenous person and how the communities of Indigenous peoples have often been historically marginalized, forgotten, and taken for granted, and their contributions to the world have not always been recognized.

But Marisa has hope that through conversations such as ours with her, and through other advocacies, this can change.
