Adam Gaudry, Ph.D. is Métis and an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Native Studies and Department of Political Science at the University of Alberta.

Adam’s research explores nineteenth-century Métis political thought, the Métis-Canada  “Manitoba Treaty”  of 1870, and the failure of Canada to effectively implement the agreement. This project argues for the maintenance of a respectful and bilateral political relationship between the Métis Nation and the Canadian people as treaty partners. This work is being revised into a book for publication with the University of Manitoba Press.

Adam received his Ph.D. from the Indigenous Governance Program at the University of Victoria, and both his MA in Sociology and BAH in Political Studies from Queen’s University. He was a Henry Roe Cloud  Fellow at Yale University and currently a co-investigator in the Métis Treaties Project.

Adam’s work has been published in Native American and Indigenous Studies, The Wicazo Sa Review, aboriginal policy studies, the Canadian Journal of Native Education, the Osgoode Hall Law Journal, and The Canadian Encyclopedia. He also has several chapters in edited collections on Métis identity, research ethics, and methodology.
