My research interests revolve around the multiple conceptualizations of leisure and the socio-cultural study of sport and recreation. Specifically, I’m interested in how understandings and meanings of leisure are changing in relation to understandings of work. As well, I’m also interested in Indigenous notions of decolonization, indigenization, sovereignty and self-determination. Overall, the main thread of my research seeks to trouble modern Western conceptualizations of leisure and, by extension, notions of work through a critical Indigenous lens.
In my work, I strive to privilege Indigenous ways of knowing and of being in the world.
I studied sport in the Indigenous context and engaged in auto-ethnographical research related to my experiences as Indigenous person engaged in modern, competitive sport.
