"I have been recognized as a finalist for the Livingston Award and nominated for the Canadian National Magazine Awards twice. I wrote the foreword to the Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada and was invited to consult for the forthcoming UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights’ general comment on land rights. I have authored and edited many public policy briefs, memos, reports, polls, scorecards and other works, contributing to progressive platforms like the Green New Deal.
The belief that Indigenous peoples can contribute to understanding and solving the world’s most pressing challenges inspires my work. In 2019, I helped lead a grassroots effort to bring an Indigenous canoe journey to San Francisco Bay to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Alcatraz Occupation. Eighteen canoes representing communities from as far north as Canada and as far west as Hawaii participated in the journey, which was covered by dozens of local and national media outlets, including The New York Times. In addition to the canoe journey, I guest edited “Alcatraz is Not an Island”, a special issue of Open Space magazine, and moderated a four-part speaker series, “Alcatraz: An Unfinished Occupation”, co-hosted by five local museums."
