Biography: 

Dr. Angela Gonzales is an enrolled citizen of the Hopi Nation from the Village of Songoopavi (Spider clan) and Associate Professor in the School of Social Transformation.  She joined the ASU faculty in Fall 2016 after 12 years on the faculty at Cornell University. As an interdisciplinary scholar, Gonzales’s research cuts across and integrates the fields of sociology, American Indian/Indigenous studies, and public health. Her projects include a 5-year NCI-funded study, Enhancing Cervical Cancer Prevention Strategies among Hopi Women and Adolescents. Conducted in partnership with the Hopi Tribe, this two-part study examined the human papillomavirus (HPV) across the life course to identify the presence of high-risk HPV types in American Indian women and identify factors associated with parental acceptability of the HPV vaccination among adolescent girls. In 2009, Gonzales co-curated the Smithsonian exhibit, InDivisible: African Native American Lives in the Americans, a collaboration between the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian and National Museum of African American History and Culture.  

Gonzales has received numerous awards, fellowships, and grants for her scholarship, teaching and community service, including the Ford Foundation Diversity Pre-doctoral and Post-doctoral Fellowships, the Kaplan Award for Public Service (Cornell), and the Katrin H. Lamon Fellowship at the School for Advanced Research (Santa Fe, NM). Gonzales strives to embody the Hopi values of sumingnawa (working together with others) and numingnawa (working for the benefit of all) through her research and service.  She currently serves on the Board for the Colorado Plateau Foundation, a Native-led foundation that supports the protection of water, protection of sacred places and threatened landscapes, preservation of Native languages, and sustainable community-based agriculture. She is also a founding Board Member of the Hopi Education Endowment Fund, an organization of Hopi college and university graduates working to collectively inspire and assist future generations of Hopi college students. Gonzales holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from Harvard University, an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside.
