Department of Political Science
Tanshi! My name is Daniel and I am Métis from the Métis Nation of the Red River Valley. I descend from a well-respected family of buffalo hunters who lived in Red River while travelling the length and breadth of the northern plains. I was born, raised, and educated near my family?s scrip land in the inner city of Winnipeg. I completed my undergraduate degree in Politics at the University of Winnipeg in 2007. Between 2007 and 2008 I served as the lead intern in the Manitoba Legislative Assembly Internship Program where I wrote speeches and researched for both executive council and government members of the legislative assembly. My doctoral research examined the political and decolonizing relationships between Métis and other Indigenous peoples in Manitoba. Using the work of Métis scholar and activist Howard Adams, I argue that fractious and uncomfortable political relationships can foster a broad inter-Indigenous decolonizing politics. I am thrilled to be a member of the Department of Political Science at the world class University of Calgary in the territory of Treaty 7 peoples.
