Boozhoo, biindigeken. Welcome to the personal website for Zach Francis. This page contains my academic and professional experiences, as well as my current digital projects. I named this site after Miskogwan, the Ojibwe word for Red Feather, which was the name given to me in my naming ceremony. Being anishinaabe is an important part of my identity. Growing up in western Grand Rapids, however, I never felt like a "real Indian". I attended private catholic school where my brother and I were known as the Indian kids, and yet Anishinaabe culture, language, and history were never emphasized in our day-to-day lives. This is what inspired me to get involved in archaeology and the digital humanities, where I hope to make Indigenous perspectives, knowledge, and cultural heritage more accessible to people like me who want to know more about what it means to be an indigenous person in America.
