Profesor in the Department of Indigneous Studies, Lakehead University

I work in the Indigenous Studies Department at Lakehead University. My research interests can broadly be defined as: Indigenous history, race and colonization, settler studies, women and gender history, the social history of health and medicine, and western Canadian history. She has published articles on Indigenous women’s healing practices, focusing specifically on childbirth and birth control and the genesis of colonial health care regimes in Treaty 7 communities. Her current research projects investigate the relationship between health, food sovereignty, and colonialism and the challenges posed by a lack of personal identification when accessing essential services in northern Indigenous communities.
