Tina Munroe


I'm a non-status Anishinaabe (Saulteaux) woman who grew up in the city far from my mother’s homeland and I spend a lot of time thinking about what the repatriation of Indigenous land and life could look like if imagined beyond the parameters of capitalism or the Indian Act. My dissertation research considers the ways urban Indigenous people made “dispossessed" of traditional homelands relate to place and space in cities plagued by racial violence like my hometown of Thunder Bay.
