Bio/Research

I am currently completing a collaborative book manuscript, co-written with a Sliammon Elder and her grand-daughter. The book is a first-person, "told-to" narrative of Sliammon teachings and her own life experiences. The next phrase of this SSHRC-funded project entails developing an on-line, open access, digital archive that interconnects the English and Sliammon transcripts with the narrative presented in the book. I am also working on study of two late-twentieth-century relocations of the Mowachaht-Muchalaht First Nation on Vancouver Island. This work considers the impact of these moves on the physical and social health of the community, and provides a window onto the twentieth-century transformations that have characterized many Aboriginal communities along the coast and throughout British Columbia.
