My professional interests include antiracism, decolonial theory, Indigenous sovereignty, Indigenous stewardship of land and other resources. As a researcher (I’m finishing my PhD), I think about identity, technology, colonialism, and culture in order to learn more about how mainstream academic practice is related to the marginalization of underrepresented scholars and communities.
What drew you to the Caleb Scholars program?
It was made to honor my father and the Pungowiyi family Steering Committee seat has been held by my mother and my sisters prior to my official involvement on the committee. Beyond that, I really believe in this program and its impact. Inuit advocacy is so important.
What does conservation mean to you?
Conservation means being careful, joyful, and generous in how you interact with our precious lands, waters, air, plants, and animals.
Taikuu for your commitment to the Caleb Scholars Program!
