Heather Green is an assistant professor in the Department of History at Saint Mary’s University located in K’jipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, NS). She obtained her PhD from the University of Alberta in 2018 where her doctoral studies examined the colonial history of gold mining and environmental transformation in relation to Indigenous-setter relations in the Klondike region of the Yukon Territory. She was privileged to work with the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in First Nation in Dawson City throughout that research process. Her current research focuses on environmental histories of mining, sport-hunting tourism and colonialism, and heritage landscapes in the Canadian North. She teaches courses on environmental history, Indigenous-settler relations, and history in film in which she adopts pedagogies of hands-on skills and research creation in digital and written forms.
