About

(They/Them) I am personally interested in issues related to identity, human rights, and the environment – specifically their intersections and overlap. In many ways the Arctic is a convergence of these topics, which is what drew me to take part in both the minor and this Task Force. Through our research this quarter, I am most excited to focus in and learn about the fight for sovereignty, self-governance and cultural preservation undertaken by indigenous groups across the Arctic – especially Inuit organizations and communities. I am looking forward to both travelling to Ottawa, and collaborating with all of my classmates on this project!
