qualifications: PhD

contribution: contributed to drafts

position: Sub-Dean, Early career researchers

B.Sc. (U of Manitoba, Canada), M.A. (U of Alaska, USA), PhD. (Monash University, Australia). Research Fellow, University Centre for Rural Health Sub-Dean (ECR) for Rural Health, Sydney Medical School University of Sydney I am Opaskwayak Cree from northern Manitoba, Canada. My main area of expertise is in research methodology and epistemologies, particularly in ways of knowing and conducting research used by Indigenous peoples. I have applied these methodologies and epistemologies within the contexts of Indigenous education, counselling and counsellor education, Indigenous mental health and general Indigenous studies through comparison between Indigenous peoples internationally. In my previous book Gwitch'in Native Elders: Not just knowledge but a way of looking at the world, I began to document some ideas about just what an Elder is and how they can be supported. My more recent book Research is Ceremony: Indigenous Research Methods (2008) examines some of the similarities in philosophy underlying Indigenous peoples' research methodologies in Canada and Australia. In addition to further articulating Indigenous philosophies and research paradigms, my research focuses on the inter-related concepts of identity, health and healing, culture and wellbeing.
