BIO: Zoe Todd (Métis) is from Amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton) in the Treaty Six Area of Alberta, Canada. She is a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Anthropology at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. She studied Social Anthropology at the University of Aberdeen and in June 2016 successfully defended her thesis on human-fish relations in northern Canada . She researches human-animal and human-environmental relations, Indigenous legal orders and (de)colonial praxis in Canada. Her recent work focuses on fish and Indigenous legal orders. She is also interested in the articulation of Indigenous people’s history and rights in relation to municipal development in Canada — specifically how Indigeneity is expressed through architecture, art, urban planning and story-telling. Her work employs a critical Indigenous feminist lens to examine the shared relationships between people and their environments and legal orders in Canada, with a view to understanding how to bring fish and the more-than-human into conversations about Indigenous self-determination, peoplehood, and governance in Canada today.
