Ian identifies as Algonquin/settler.  He is a non-status member of Shabot Obaadjiwan Algonquin First Nation in Sharbot Lake.  His research interests include Critical Indigenous Masculinities Studies, Indigenous feminisms, ritual theory, colonial Christianities, the impact of lateral violence in Indigenous communities, and ongoing attempts to “Indigenize” the academy.  Previously, Ian worked as Director of Student Success and Service Delivery at First Nations Technical Institute (FNTI) in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.  He also held a part-time faculty role at FNTI, developing and delivering curricula for Indigenous students.

Ian was also employed at Queen’s School of Religion from 2010 to 2013 in a contract position coordinating a youth mentorship program on behalf of the School.  Ian and his partner live with their children in a rural setting and do their best to live a re-Indigenizing life in a colonized (and colonizing) world.
