Adam Gaudry, Ph.D. is Métis and currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Indigenous Studies at the University of Saskatchewan. Beginning July 1, 2016, Adam will be joining 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 formation of a Metis-Canada treaty relationship in 1870, and the subsequent non-implementation of that agreement. This project argues for the ongoing existence a “Manitoba treaty” between the Métis people and Canada necessitates the maintenance of a respectful and bilateral political relationship between the treaty partners. This work is being revised into a book for publication.
Adam received his Ph.D. from the Indigenous Governance Program at the University of Victoria, and his MA in Sociology and BAH in Political Studies from Queen’s University. For his doctoral research on historic Métis-Canada relations, Adam received the Henry Roe Cloud Dissertation Writing Fellowship at Yale University. He is also a co-investigator on the SSHRC-funded Métis Treaties Project.
Adam has published articles in Native American and Indigenous Studies, The Wicazo Sa Review, aboriginal policy studies, and the Canadian Journal of Native Education along with chapters in edited collections on Métis identity, research ethics, and methodology.
