Dr. McGregor’s research focusses on Indigenous knowledge systems and their applications in diverse contexts including water and environmental governance, environmental justice, forest policy and management, and sustainable development. Here is a description of Dr. McGregor’s research from the CRC website:
 
“What does it mean to “live well” with the Earth in the face of climate/ecological crisis? What does a self-determined climate future look like for Indigenous communities and peoples? Indigenous-derived solutions must be generated based on knowledge systems, which have fostered Indigenous survival despite centuries of environmental upheaval affected by colonization. This research will capture desired “Indigenous climate change futures” described by Elders and other knowledge holders, shared through peer-reviewed journal articles, workshops, podcasts, videos, a website, and presentations.”
 
Dr. McGregor, who is Anishinaabe from Whitefish River First Nation, Ontario, remains actively involved Indigenous communities, serving as an advisor and engaging in community-based research and initiatives. To learn more about Indigenous environmental justice, check out the following website for one of Dr. McGregor’s initiatives, the Indigenous Environmental Justice Project. Several excellent and short videos capture their work with local communities.
