About the Speaker: Cynthia-Lou Coleman is a teacher and researcher at Portland State University, where she studies science, health and risk communication. Dr. Coleman explores how scientific discourse unfolds in conflicts that impact American Indian communities. Her work has included examination of mining in Indian Country, social effects of drug advertising, and the controversy surrounding the repatriation of Kennewick Man – a 9200 year old skeleton discovered at the Columbia River. She has held fellowships with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She is an enrolled member of the Osage Tribe. 

This project received support from the Spirit Mountain Community Fund of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and the Faculty Enhancement Grant program of the Research and Strategic Partnerships at Portland State University.
