My name is Jessica Markey Locklear and I am a graduate student studying public history at Temple University.  I am interested in American Indian histories and how they are represented and interpreted in museums and historic sites. Prior to arriving at Temple, I recieved undergraduate degrees in History and American Indian Studies from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP) in 2017. I am an enrolled citizen of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina and much of my academic interests revolve around Lumbee history. This blog is primarily used for sharing my classwork on a public platform.
