Research Interests

Marie is an Anishinaabe from Michigan and has had the opportunity to work for tribes in Arizona and Michigan. Her research focuses on indigenous knowledge revitalization, especially manoomin (wild rice) revitalization, and braiding indigenous and scientific knowledges using a indigenous community-based participatory research framework. She hopes her work helps to contribute to sustainable futures for indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.
