Dr. Lyla June Johnston (aka Lyla June)

The world needs each and every one of our perspectives as we each offer a piece of the overall puzzle of the human story. Lyla June Johnston, Ph.D., is an Indigenous woman who has completed her undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees, battling impostor syndrome each step of the way.

On June 11, join the Native American, Indigenous and Pacific Islander Staff Association (NAIPISA) for a conversation with Dr. Johnston. She will discuss personal experiences, why impostor syndrome exists and why all of us deserve to share our message to the world — and how the world desperately needs our unique perspectives to be whole and complete.

About Dr. Johnston

Lyla June Johnston (aka Lyla June) is an Indigenous musician, author and community organizer of Diné (Navajo), Tsétsêhéstâhese (Cheyenne) and European lineages. Her multi-genre presentation style has engaged audiences across the globe towards personal, collective and ecological healing. She blends her study of human ecology at Stanford, graduate work in Indigenous pedagogy, and the traditional worldview she grew up with to inform her music, perspectives and solutions. Her doctoral research focused on the ways in which pre-colonial Indigenous nations shaped large regions of Turtle Island (aka the Americas) to produce abundant food systems.
