Osiyo, my name is Tommy Jones from Jones, Oklahoma. I am both Cherokee from the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma (father’s side) and Aleut from the Bristol Bay region of Alaska (mother’s side). I attended Oklahoma City University and graduated with two bachelor’s in Biology and Spanish. Afterward, I went to the University of Hawaii at Hilo and received a Master’s in Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science.
Currently, I am working on a Ph.D. in Natural Resources Studies and minoring in American Indian studies at the University of Arizona. My research focus is to analyze the barriers to renewable energy development on Tribal lands and the relevance of Nation-building theory with regard to the development of renewable energy projects on Tribal lands. Ensuring those who want energy, can have it is my goal.
