Bio/Research

My current research focus is on the political, social and cultural processes that have surrounded Coast Salish people's efforts to resolve aboriginal title and rights claims and establish self-government. I am interested in the interplay of culture, power and discourse in land claims negotiations, and in exploring the political and ontological challenges for indigenous people who engage institutions of the state. My work is keenly attenuated to developing practical policy outcomes from the insights gained from this research. My research is community-driven and politically engaged in matters of contemporary social significance.
