ABOUT ME

My professional, academic and volunteer work explores Indigenous, Western, Christian and other histories and cultures and seeks to bring them into deep dialogue on fundamental human questions. It also seeks to connect these questions to pragmatic public history, public policy, leadership, governance and community issues, opportunities and initiatives.

Grounded in a life-long relationship with the people of Omushkego Aski and Eeyou Istchee (James Bay) and the primary discipline of history, my work is also informed and enriched by interdisciplinary work in cultural anthropology, literature, and philosophy as well as diverse professional, non-profit, community development, public history and public policy activities.
