About Me

A member of the Tsay Keh Dene First Nation, I currently teaches History and Indigenous studies at the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta.  Prior to this appointment I taught sessionally on the North Campus of the University Alberta in History and Native Studies.  Taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, I examine numerous historical topics from a sociocultural perspective that encourages critical thinking over rote memorization.


My research primarily focuses on Native-newcomer relations in Western Canada, with a particular emphasis on the law, environment and economy.
