Dr. Kisha Supernant, 2017-2018
Our second Research Fellowship recipient is Dr. Kisha Supernant, from the University of Alberta’s Department of Anthropology (Faculty of Arts). Dr. Supernant is Métis and an Associate Professor, and her proposed research for this grant will focus on spatial analysis of Métis movement in specific areas of Alberta (Lac Ste Anne, St. Alberta, and Fort Edmonton). This will result in a database of information including individuals, maps, and visualizations. Her research brings together historical GIS, archaeology, and archival research, and will be foundational in collecting this kind of information in a Métis context.
RCMR has had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Supernant at one of our Métis Talks back in October, 2016. She is also a member of the research team for the Métis Kinscapes Project and will be a great asset to RCMR this year.
