About

Kwe! Hello! Salut! 今日は!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I am originally from Moh-kíns-tsis (Calgary) in the Treaty 7 region of Métis, Norwegian, and Swiss-German ancestry with family roots across the prairies and eastern woodlands. As a researcher and educator my interests include Indigenous science and environmental education, Indigenous environmental knowledge and philosophy, renewable energy development, environmental health and justice, and social movement learning. I typically approach these topics through interpretive and Indigenous research methodologies.

Warm wishes,

Greg Lowan-Trudeau, PhD
