I am an academic archaeologist, working collaboratively with indigenous communities to explore the rich, complex history of western Canada through the archaeological record. I am Métis, but my father was taken from his young Métis mother when he was a baby, so I am now engaging in the hard work of connecting to my community and reckoning with my privilege as a white-coded indigenous woman. I am in the process of listening and learning, inquiring and exploring, with the goal of making the academic world a more equitable place.
My blog will cover many topics germane to my work life, including archaeology, equity in academia, indigenous issues, and motherhood. For more information about my professional life, please visit my website.
