Nhung Cam Luong is a Vietnamese-born refugee with teaching experience as a K-12 (ELA and History) educator in both Aboriginal Australian, and mainstream schools in Australia and the United Kingdom. She does not have any tribal affiliations and settled as a refugee to unceded Wurundjeri territories of the Kulin Nation (Melbourne, Australia).
Currently, Nhung is a Ph.D. candidate and graduate teaching assistant in the College of Education, Teaching, Learning and Sociocultural Studies, and American Indian Studies, at the University of Arizona, which resides on the ancestral homelands of the Tohono O’Odham and Pascua Yaqui Nations.
Nhung was also a previous Tribal History/Shared History curricula developer intern during 2021 at the Oregon Department of Education, Office of Indian Education, where she worked with key partners including Tribal Nations in Oregon on future Grade 9 lesson plans in ELA, Science, Social Science, Health, and Math.
As a teacher-researcher, she is currently working on her dissertation which will examine the current implementation of Tribal History/Shared History curricula in public schools in Oregon and how building coalitions are being built between key partners involved.
