Job searching. Savoring the best of what the PNW has to offer.
The pandemic has displaced me from my job and life in New York City, and I am currently living back at home with my parents. It's not as bad as it sounds–I've kept myself very busy cycling thousands of miles, hiking hundreds of miles, and baking up a storm (no really, head to my Instagram @lexicon_lexi to see some delicious recipes).
Originally from Washington State, I'm brushing up on my interest in local history. How much of my town history do I know, and how much of it has been shaped by the elevation of white settler history as the prevailing narrative? How do we further what we already know by including narratives of Indigenous People and People of Color? Their presence deserves room in the historical narrative.
