About Dr. Dan Henhawk

Dan Henhawk

Dr. Henhawk's research interests revolve around the multiple conceptualizations of leisure and the socio-cultural study of sport and recreation. Specifically, he's interested in how understandings and meanings of leisure are changing in relation to understandings of work. As well, Dr. Henhawk is also interested in Indigenous notions of decolonization, indigenization, sovereignty and self-determination. Overall, the main thread of his research seeks to trouble modern Western conceptualizations of leisure and, by extension, notions of work through a critical Indigenous lens.

In his work, Dr. Henhawk strive to privilege Indigenous ways of knowing and of being in the world.
