Bio

Pat has taught at universities in Aotearoa-New Zealand, Canada, and the United States, in large urban centres, in remote northern communities and on First Nations reserves. Her teaching is shaped by feminist, poststructural, posthumanist, Indigenous and ecological theory and practices. Her research focusses on the intersections of social justice, Indigeneity, more-than-human, ecology, and globalization. For over a decade Pat has been conducting research with the St’at’imc communities in BC in the regeneration of their traditional ecological knowledges and practices. This research is expanding to include research with the Kichwa-Lamista in the High Amazon of Peru to examine the significance of their traditional ecological knowings as counter-narratives to the ‘progress narrative’ and the debilitating forces of extractive economics.
