Tricia McGuire-Adams (from Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek) holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Ganandawisiwin/Good Health Sovereignties and is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education. Dr. McGuire-Adams’ research challenges deficit-based narratives within Indigenous health research by centering Indigenous dibaajimowinan (stories) of physical activity, health, and wellbeing. Her CIHR and New Frontiers in Research funded program of research looks to Anishinaabeg land-based learning, physical activities, and gikendaasowin (knowledge) about Indigenous disabilities and sport, to further amplify Indigenous peoples’ practices of health and well-being. Dr. McGuire-Adams is passionate about fostering Indigenous research methodologies in research and teaching, where she teaches PED 3138 First Nations, Métis and Inuit Perspectives to teacher candidates within the Faculty of Education.  She is seeking to mentor undergraduate and graduate students, especially from Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour and/or other marginalized perspectives, who are committed to disrupting settler colonialism through their research.
