I hope to employ an interdisciplinary approach to exploring time-periods and peoples who have largely been ignored by historians.  Specifically, I hope to use biogeography, GIS, paleoecology, and archaeology (amongst other disciplines) to move beyond “prehistory” in order to explore some of the vast histories of Native American peoples of the Great Lakes Region before the arrival of Europeans.  I hope to use ecological historical evidence in my research when and where the written record ceases to exist.
