Her scholarship has greatly contributed to building and sharing knowledge about land based education; two-spirit identity, history, and teachings; indigenous research methodologies; anti-oppressive education; the prevention of violence in the lives of Indigenous peoples and the protection of land and water. Her research and “coming in” theory has led to classroom and community practices that honour the contributions and lives of two-spirit people.
