She has carried out fieldwork in the Navajo Nation in Arizona and extensive linguistic fieldwork at the Akwesasne Mohawk Reserve in Ontario/Quebec, beginning in 1969. There she began the efforts to develop materials for language maintenance programs, completing her dissertation (A Grammar of Akwesasne Mohawk) and working with community members on dictionaries and conversations.

Dr. Bonvillain has taught on the undergraduate and graduate levels in several universities including Michigan State University and the State University of New York at Stonybrook.

She has written seventeen books in the North American Indian cultures and histories series published by Chelsea House.
