Check out my new article:  “Teachers amongst their own people:” Kanyen’kehá:ka (Mohawk) women teachers in 19th Century Tyendinaga and Grand River, Ontario.” In a Special Issue that I co-edited with Thomas Peace called “Contesting Indigenous Education.” Historical Studies in Education/Revue d’histoire de l’éducation, Volume 29, No. 1 (Spring 2017): 32-56.

I currently work for the Ontario Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliations as a Research Advisor. I earned my PhD in history from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto. I'm currently also a Research Associate in the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies, the School for the Study of Canada, Trent University.  My current academic research is a history of Indigenous teachers in southern Ontario in the 19th century.
