Publications

I have written three scholarly books, two published by Oxford University Press and one by the University of Toronto Press. Two of them are available for purchase online, and one may be downloaded, here:

Wasáse: Indigenous Pathways of Action and Freedom

Peace, Power, Righteousness: an Indigenous Manifesto

Heeding the Voices of Our Ancestors

 

An essay I wrote on “skin” as part of a collection of authors’ reflections on their body parts is included in a book titled, In The Flesh:

What I Think About When I think About Skin

 

I have a short creative prose piece in KWE, the author Joseph Boyden’s collaborative project with Amnesty International supporting the families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women:

Kindness Flowed Through the Generations

 

One of the projects I am most proud of is the collection of research and reporting work that was done under my supervision over the period of a decade to support the negotiation of a settlement between the Mohawks of Akwesasne and General Motors and ALCOA in relation to industrial contamination released into the natural environment. My work documented the harm to Mohawk culture and generated a framework for cultural restoration that was implemented starting in 2014. A short article describing the process and Mohawk approach to restoration as well as the official anthropological report produced for the legal process are below:
