Gabriel Maracle is a member of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte, also known as Tyendinaga.  His father was born in Tyendinaga, and his mother is non-Indigenous originally from Guelph, Ontario. He is originally from Ottawa, Ontario, and is also a graduate of Carleton University. He works as a lecturer in the Department of Political Science here at Carleton. His research and career focus on Indigenous issues; from the evolving nature of Indigenous governance to the intricacies of urban Indigenous life. His Ph.D. is on healing programs and services for Indigenous men both on and off-reserve. Part of this research is understanding how individuals, families, communities, and organizations contribute to Indigenous civil society, Indigenous self-determination, and self-governance.

Kaleigh McIntosh is a Ph.D. candidate in the Dept. of Geography and Environmental Studies at Carleton University. Her doctoral research explores how relationships across stakeholders in the governance of socioecological settings contribute to developing long-term resilience. Her research focuses on governance actors of the Wolastoq Valley in New Brunswick, Canada to critically assess relationships of the water-related actors working in the watershed and their contribution to resilience. In doing so, I examine how inclusive and long-term collaborative governance relationships can contribute to resilience of complex socioecological setting like the Wolastoq Valley.
