Shenae Bishop is a graduate of Humboldt State University with a Bachelor's degree in Theatre Arts. She has long-term goals to be a professor of Native American Studies and plans to use Theatre skills as a set of tools to fight systemic oppression. She is of Apache and Eastern Band Cherokee heritage, and she is passionate about supporting Indigenous communities in environmental justice, Indigenous women's leadership, asserting self-determination, and community organizing.
Shenae started with Seventh Generation Fund as an intern in 2015 and became the new Program Associate for the Thriving Women’s Initiative in January 2016. She has high hopes that the Thriving Women’s Initiative can be a resource and framework for Native women led work all over the world.
