Stephanie Cote

Headshot of Stephanie CoteOur 2024 visiting scholar, Stephanie Cote, is a member of the Odawa and Potawatomi from the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians from Northern Michigan. She descends from a lineage of basket weavers, and to honor her ancestry, her articles are woven from common Native knowledge, accessible online articles and the wisdom imparted by Native peers and elders to support hypotheses developed from the intersectionality of Native American experience and financial education. Throughout the year, Stephanie worked on a seven-part series exploring Indigenous populations entitled “Financial Education for the Contiguous United States Native Nations.” She interviewed Indigenous leaders to investigate historical contexts, present barriers and successes and future visions for economic thriving in Native Nations.

Visiting scholars are the voice of their own work. As a supplement, our Research Team authors companion pieces throughout the year, giving our insight as an organization through data and expertise to frame our own perspective. Together, the body of work developed will offer audiences a well-rounded view of the topic, which can be utilized in their own work on related topics.
