Dr. Greymorning holds joint positions in Anthropology and Native American Studies. He is a political anthropologist who has conducted research among Indigenous peoples of Australia, Canada, Colombia S.A., New Zealand, E. Timor and the United States. Professor Greymorning's research interests include Native American language maintenance and restoration, Indigenous sovereignty issues and contemporary Native American issues.
Professor Greymorning’s academic career started at the University of Alberta where, from 1988 to 1992, he taught courses on linguistics, comparative Indian legislation and aboriginal self-government while writing his doctoral dissertation on "Indigenous Peoples and the Ethnocentrism of the Courts." After receiving his Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma in 1992, he served as the Director of the Arapaho Language and Culture Project for the Wyoming Indian Schools. As a faculty member at the University of Montana since 1994, he has also lectured as a visiting scholar at Southern Cross University in Australia, 1997, 1999, 2003 & 2007, and during the 2001-2002 academic year he served as the Acting Director of the Indigenous Governance Programs at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. While maintaining academic interests in Native sovereignty issues, his work in developing strategies toward Native language restoration has continued. In this capacity Neyooxet serves as the Executive Director of Hinono'eitiit Ho’oowu' (Arapaho Language Lodge) in Wyoming, a position that has been instrumental in his development of a break-through method for second language instruction and acquisition called Accelerated Second Language Acquisition (ASLA). Professor Greymorning has been named three times to Who's Who Among America’s College and University Teachers (1999, 2004, 2005).
