In her dissertation project, Dr. Gansworth suggests that Anguilla rostrata, American eels, are important species to remember and understand within the lands and histories of Anishinabeg and other Indigenous nations. The research methods included contributions from thinkers in Anishinabe-centric studies and settings along with other disciplines. This talk will share details about both process and findings.
