Adam Gaudry, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta. He is from a Lake-of-the-Woods Métis family in Northwestern Ontario, who migrated there from Red River. He grew up in Ancaster, Ontario.
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.
