Bio/Research

I am a member of the Serpent River First Nation and was born and raised in Elliot Lake, Ontario. I completed my undergraduate degree in History and English at Laurier in 2005 and obtained my MA in History from Western in 2006.

While completing my PhD at Laurier through the Tri-University Graduate Program in History, I taught courses in Indigenous and Canadian history in the Department of Humanities at Mount Royal University in Calgary, and also worked as an academic advisor in the Faculty of Arts. Prior to joining Laurier as a faculty member in 2014, I was an assistant professor in the Department of History at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

My research focuses on Indigenous-settler relations, particularly those framed by gender and environmental issues. I am also interested in Indigenous methodologies and decolonizing research practices.

My monograph, Serpent River Resurgence: Confronting Uranium Mining at Elliot Lake, is forthcoming from University of Toronto Press.

I am also interested in examining gendered experiences of colonialism. Specifically, I have written about the roles of Indigenous women in Anishinaabe communities in postwar Ontario, and their contributions to the politicization of First Nations in the post-war period. My current research interests include performance art as an expression of Indigenous feminist thought, as well as Indigenous parenting in a contemporary context.
