Percilla Frizzell (Dine with Apache relatives) graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a master’s degree in education. After working with Teach For America as a second generation alumni (former student and corp member), she studied community organizing at the Harvard Kennedy School with Marshall Ganz. Percilla manages a portfolio of strategies for systems change, including teaching and leading healing spaces in prisons, consulting for education organizations and advocating for tribal communities by serving on national advisory councils for Native education. She co-founded Sacred Generations alongside her formerly incarcerated husband (Duckwater Shoshone with Pit River Paiute relatives). Their personal proximity to pain and power as system-impacted Indigenous peoples of this stolen land has brought them together to lead healing and racial justice movement building in Native California.
