Author Biography

Mona Scott holds two degrees in Sociology from the University of Southern California and Arizona State University, respectively. She is a professor of Sociology at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Arizona. Her teaching and research background include Human Sexuality with an emphasis on Native American Sexuality, Race and Ethnicity and American Indian Studies. She draws heavily from her work with the urban Indian population at the Southern California Indian Center in Los Angeles, California as well as her observations growing up on the Navajo reservation, South Central Los Angeles now called “South Los Angeles” and the border town of Winslow, Arizona. These vastly different environments and diverse populations primed her to use her sociological imagination even before she majored in Sociology. Her experiences as a biracial person of Dine¢ and Black American ancestry have reinforced the reality of the social construction of race in her daily life as she challenges, the institutional racism in society.
