Awarded 1st place in the 2012 Native American Journalists Association Media Awards for the radio piece "One hundred years with Ishi: The 'last wild Indian' of North America." The story, which aired on KALW-FM, focused on the 100-year anniversary of Ishi's arrival at the University of California, Berkeley. Ishi was a Native American of the Yana people who was said by anthropologists at the time to be the last suriviving member of his tribe as well as the final uncultivated 'Indian' in the United States. The story explored the historical accounts and misconceptions surrounding Ishi.
