Stó:lō scholar Dr. Wenona Hall has recently become a faculty member in Indigenous Studies, however, she is already an established member of our university community. A triple alumnus of the university, she holds her BA, MA, and PhD from SFU.
Dr. Hall is from Sq’ewqeyl First Nation and the Ts’elxwéyeqw Tribe, located in Chilliwack. She joins us from the University of the Fraser Valley, where she was the Department Chair, as well as an Associate Professor, in Indigenous Studies.
Dr. Hall’s doctoral research at SFU focused on self-determination and Indigenous governance, while her master’s thesis research examined Indigenous/Sto:lo justice. In addition to her continuing interest in these areas, she is also interested in examining processes of decolonization and Indigenous resurgence. This spring semester, Dr. Hall will be sharing her knowledge and expertise with our students by teaching INDG 401 - Indigenous Peoples and Public Policy.
