We are pleased to welcome visiting Native scholar, Rachel Sayet, to the Yale community. Funded by a grant from the Library’s Standing Committee on Professional Awareness (SCOPA), Rachel will work with Project editors to identify and annotate selected material from the Beinecke’s Ezra Stiles papers from a tribal perspective for publication in the New England Indian Papers Series Electronic Archive.
A member of the Mohegan Tribe, Rachel is currently a library assistant at the Mohegan Tribal Library in Uncasville, Connecticut. A former writer/curator for the Writing of Indigenous New England Project at the University of New Hampshire, she has been a reader for the Harvard Review, a curatorial research assistant for the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University, and a publications intern for the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.
