Part One: Wednesday, May 9th, 5:30 to 7pm: “Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Land Justice”
Dr. Michelle Daigle, Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, University of British Columbia
Michelle Daigle is Mushkegowuk (Swampy Cree) and a member of the Constance Lake First Nation in Canada. She is a faculty member and UBC, and her research examines resource exploitation and gendered forms of dispossession and violence within Indigenous communities in settler-colonial contexts, particularly in her home territory. Simultaneously, she is interested in the spatial and gendered politics of Indigenous water governance, as they are entangled in colonial capitalist developments.
