Asa is a member of The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma and descendant of The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. He is pursuing a major in biology for wildlife conservation and a minor Native American Studies for cultural preservation. He plans to utilize his education towards wildlife conservation with an Indigenous perspective and cultural preservation of Tribal Nations in sacred land. His goals include engaging in wildlife conservation for the health of our planet and implementing a holistic approach that tribal people have been practicing for thousands of years.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
