Zoë Harris is a Community Health Sciences PhD student at the UIC School of Public Health. Zoë is a citizen of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and has worked with her own tribal community as well as urban Native populations in Boston and Chicago on topics of education, health promotion, and language preservation, specifically among youth populations. Zoë is also a Jamaican citizen and has family roots in Selma, Alabama. Therefore, she strives to educate people on the unique experiences of afro-indigenous people to shed light on the lateral oppression that exists in these communities. In addition to her work on indigenous wellness systems, she has also worked on projects related to suicide prevention, social determinants of health, and racism as a public health issue.
