Indigenous Histories of Turtle Island

The Tri-University Graduate Program in History has one of the largest concentrations of graduate faculty in Indigenous history in the country, offering expertise on gender, environmental history, health and wellness, cultural performance, public history, Indigenous-settler relations, resource and urban development disputes, Indigenizing/Indigenized identities and activism, histories of settler colonialism, Anishinaabe feminism, and Indigenous research methodologies, pedagogies, and decolonizing practices.

Indigenous Histories of Turtle Island covers the history of Indigenous peoples in what is now Canada and the United States. The term Turtle Island signals an Indigenous label for this geographical place. It also highlights Indigenous historical understandings and is culturally relevant to the Indigenous peoples—Neutral, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee—on whose traditional territories all three universities involved in the Tri-University Graduate Program in History are situated.
