Research

Dr. Gaudry is currently working on two main research projects.

The first is, The Manitoba Treaty, a book-length analysis on nineteenth-century Métis political thought and the Métis-Canada treaty of 1870, currently under contract with the University of Manitoba Press. 

The second is, Ganahghootr'onatan, a land-based learning course focusing on Gwich'in traditional knowledge, history, and governance in Teetł'it Zheh, NWT.

He has also published extensively on Métis identity, history, and political thought; Indigenous research methodologies; land-based learning; and indigenization policy in Canadian post-secondary education. He welcomes prospective grad students to contact him about supervision in any of these areas.
