About me

ta’c lĂ©ehyn (Good day). My name is Kyle Pittman and I am a Nez Perce descendant, a people from the Plateau Region of the Pacific Northwest. I also have Yakama ancestry that I mention to honor my ancestors and family. I grew up in Tacoma, Washington on the Puyallup Reservation.

I attended Bates Technical College and pursued a career as a union carpenter’s apprentice before turning in my tools for books to head back to college. I attended Northwest Indian College to start my undergraduate studies and finished them at The Evergreen State College through the Native Pathways Program. I went on to attend graduate school both at Evergreen and George Mason University where I obtained a Master’s in Public Administration and a certificate in digital humanities respectively, the latter experience being the impetus for this blog.

Today, I am a full time Member of the Faculty at The Evergreen State College where I teach in the Native Pathways Program (NPP). This is my way of giving back to a community that has provided me with so much and to do my part in preparing future generations of Native and non-Native students to make the world a better place. My areas of study focus on American Indian histories, federal Indian policy, and Indigenous research methodologies.
