Much of my work takes place on the University of Waterloo, Mount Royal University, and University of Illinois Urbana Champaign campuses. My collaborators, colleagues, students, partners, and I pay our respect to the First Nation and Métis ancestors of the lands where we live and work, and reaffirm our relationship with one another.
My home institution, Mount Royal University, is located in the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina, and the Îyârhe Nakoda. The campus is situated on land where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, and the traditional Blackfoot name of this place is “Mohkinstsis” which we now call the City of Calgary.
