Joyce Green

Joyce Green is Professor Emerita with the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Regina. Much of her work has dealt with Indigenous-state relations; Indigenous feminism; citizenship; identity, and racism in Canada’s political culture; Indigenous human rights, and reconciliation in the settler state context in Canada. Most recently she has turned to research relating to Ktunaxa Nation matters, including its contemporary constitution, and its cultural and political problematics since colonization.  She is the editor of Making Space for Indigenous Feminism (Fernwood Publishing and Zed Books, 2007; 2nd ed. 2017) and of Indivisible:  Indigenous Human Rights (Fernwood Publishing 2014). Dr. Green is English, Ktunaxa, and Cree-Scottish Metis, and her family’s experiences have provoked much of her scholarly and political work.  She is a citizen of the Ktunaxa Nation and a member of Yaq̓it ʔa·knuqⱡiʔit (Tobacco Plains) First Nation. She now lives in ʔa·kiskaqⱡi?it, in ʔamak̓is Ktunaxa  (Cranbrook, B.C., in Ktunaxa territory).
