While Jessica Diemer-Eaton is prevalent in many Northeastern historic cultural lifeways, her main focus is on interpretation: how Native Americans and their history and cultures are presented to school children and non-Indian audiences. Jessica's interpretive style pays particular attention to language, terminology, countering stereotypes and objectification, and presenting enlightening topics that challenge popular views of Indian "primitivism."
