My Grandmother’s Granddaughter: Indigenous Resilience | Brittany Danielle Hunt | TEDxUNCCharlotte


Brittany Danielle Hunt grew up on soap operas, stories shared with her grandmother. Currently, Brittany is a Ph.D. student, the only Indigenous American doctoral student and faculty member at the university. Brittany explores the history of Indigenous Americans as the original Southerners and the impact grandmother’s can have on the people we become. Recorded August 20, 2020. Brittany is a Ph.D. student in Curriculum and Instruction at UNC Charlotte. She has previously earned a Master’s of Social Work from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2014 and a B.A. in Psychology from Duke (her allegiances mainly lie with Duke University though). Brittany is a part-time lecturer in the School of Social Work, focusing on decolonizing and indigenizing education to bring Native American issues forward that have traditionally been erased in curriculum. Brittany is a huge fan of Harry Potter and a proud member of Slytherin House. Brittany is a member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina, the largest tribe in the state of North Carolina with more than 70,000 members. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
