Regina, SK S4P 2V7
I am a Métis Art Historian, citizen of the Métis Nation Saskatchewan, beader, and auntie. My Métis ties are in the Red River settlement, where many of my grandmother's, Florence Hodgson-Randell, family took scrip. The names in my family tree include Hodgson, Cook, McLennan, and Inkster. I am also currently a graduate student at the University of Regina in the Media, Arts, and Performance department working toward a Master of Media Studies degree in Indigenous Studies/Art History and have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the First Nation’s University of Canada in Indigenous Studies.
Research and Collections Projects
Photographing creating Public Access to the Ethnology Collection at the RSM
We are currently working to photograph non-sensitive cultural belongings under the Royal Saskatchewan Museum’s stewardship and have each piece in an online, searchable catalogue. My hope with this project is to create much more public accessibility and transparency in the collection in order to eliminate the sometimes intimidating barrier of a curator for Indigenous Peoples and communities and help to reconnect them to the people they matter most.
I am currently unable to supervise graduate students, though I do encourage all students, graduate and undergrad, with a special interest in Indigenous art and museum collections to contact me about potential summer and professional placement opportunities.
