Welcome Jeneva Kame Parks - Summer Associate

Posted by April E. Olson | Jun 08, 2023

Jeneva R. Kame Parks (she/ella) was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and is of Mexica, Japanese, and European descent. In the fall, she will be graduating from the University of Arizona with two degrees—a Juris Doctor degree, with a certificate in Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy, and a Master of Arts in Latin American Studies.

After earning an undergraduate degree in Latin American Studies from Smith College, Jeneva went on to work as an early childhood educator where she focused on developing anti-bias curriculum for young children. It was the combination of these efforts and her involvement in community advocacy that led her to apply to law school.

During law school, Jeneva served as Vice-President of the UArizona NALSA chapter, carried out extensive research on treaty rights and tribal co-management of resources on federal lands for the Tribal Justice Clinic, and supported the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous Peoples through the school's International Human Rights Advocacy Workshop. She is excited to join Rothstein as a Summer Associate and to continue serving Tribal and Indigenous nations and communities.
