Mounia Mnouer is an Amazigh Indigenous educator and scholar from Morocco. Both her parents and their families identify as Amazigh people of North Africa. She holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University where she taught Arabic for eight years, built and directed the Arabic language minor and three summer study abroad programs to Morocco for undergraduate students. In addition to Curriculum and Instruction, Dr. Mnouer’s educational background also includes Linguistics and Ethnic Studies. Her previous research explored the embodied narratives and intercultural journeys of study abroad students. Her current research includes critical narratives that pertain to Amazigh identities in Morocco and in the diaspora, engaging in social equity in international education, as well as employing decolonial frameworks to incorporate Indigenous voices in Arabic language content and pedagogy. Beyond Princeton, Dr. Mnouer also maintains an active role with the Moroccan Organization of Human Rights and The Voice of the Amazigh Woman Association on service education and Amazigh women’s issues.
