She has recently been featured for her work on water insecurity, “Narratives of Water: Exploring Hydrosocial Relations and Water (In)security in Canada and New Zealand.”

Short description from her feature:

PSI Scholar and doctoral student Dacotah-Victoria’s research considers humans’ relations and connections – to water and lived-experiences of water (in)security. Engaging in knowledge co-creation and creative arts-based approaches of storytelling, theatre and film, this partner-led research in Canada and New Zealand explores the social dimensions of water beyond measurements of quality and quantity – culture, values, identity… and their inclusion to mobilize and encourage varied conversations and responses to water (in)security.
