Personal profile

Research interests

I am a land-based education scholar focused on global Indigenous nations and communities. My research interested explore land and family-based teacher education, storytelling within trans-Indigenous collaborations, Indigenous science, mathematics, and technologies and their role in strengthening Indigenous relationalities with lands, waters, and skies.
