About Rose

Rosalina (Rose) James is Principal Owner of Cedar Rose Consulting and a member of the Lummi Nation. As an independent business operator she works with local tribal and urban Indian community organizations to support health promotion initiatives and programming. For example, Rose provides evaluation and grant writing services to the Northwest Native Plants and Foods Collective, a team of health educators, youth organizers, Elders, storytellers and tribal leaders creating innovative learning experiences that inspire a cultural relationship with the land and community-wide resilience. She is currently collaborating with local Washington State tribal groups to plan and implement community based participatory research projects around sustaining indigenous food systems and healthy diet initiatives and interventions. In her former faculty position with the University of Washington, she taught an undergraduate course on biomedical research ethics that emphasized the need for scientists and research institutions to recognize societal responsibilities as an extension of their discoveries. Rose has made important contributions to the peer-reviewed literature on establishing respectful and productive genetic research partnerships between University scientists and indigenous groups, with particular focus on addressing issues related to data sharing. She has disseminated her scholarship to academic and tribal community audiences through diverse venues, including publications for the online Genetics Resource Guide for tribal leaders developed through the National Congress of American Indians Policy Research Center. She currently co-directs the Community Outreach and Education Core of the NIH/NIEHS-sponsored Center for Ecogenetics and Environmental Health at the University of Washington in Seattle.
