Carly Dokis is an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Nipissing University. Originally from Treaty 7 territory, she now lives in Anishinabeg territory on the lands protected by the Robinson-Huron Treaty with her husband and three children. Carly has worked with Anishinabeg communities in northern Ontario and Dene communities in the Northwest Territories with a broad focus on the political ecology of environmental governance, particularly in the areas of extractive industries, water, and contamination. Her research explores how state definitions of environmental impacts are related to forms of coloniality, and how these are experienced and contested by community members. She is also interested in collaborative research methodologies that situate peoples’ knowledges and experiences of the land in relational ecologies that include emotions, community, identity, and well-being. Carly is the author of Where the Rivers Meet: Development and Participatory Management in the Sahtu Region, Northwest Territories, and co-editor of the book Subsistence Under Capitalism: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives. Her current work, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, explores land-based storytelling and stories of the land in Dokis First Nation.
