Sarah Crawford


Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University

Han Mitakuyepi! Hello, my relatives!  

My name is Sarah Crawford and my Dakota name is Wahca Zi Win, Yellow Flower Woman. I am a tribal member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe and grew up in Sisseton, South Dakota. I am a Juris Doctorate Candidate, Class of 2019, at Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology with minors in Business Management and Political Science from Minnesota State University Moorhead. After graduating, I was given the opportunity to intern in Washington, D.C. through the Udall Native American Internship Program. I was bitten by the DC swamp bug and ended up working in DC for five years! Like many of my fellow law students, I decided to go to law school to build a solid legal foundation to find ways to address issues impacting Indian Country. My passion is working on policy and legislation that will break down barriers and strengthen the sovereignty of our tribal nations.

In my free time, I love to soar through the skies as a paraglider and find new trials to run, bike, and hike on. Life is a great adventure!

Pidamayaye! Thank you!
