Kwe, n’in na teluisi Diana (Dee) Lewis. Tleyawi Sipekne’katik; Lnue’katik na Mi’kma’ki etek. (Translates to: Hi, my name is Diana Lewis. I am from Sipekne’katik; a First Nations community in Mi’kma’ki). 

My research interests are to foster a wider understanding of Indigenous worldviews and how Indigenous worldviews must inform environmental decisions, specifically as Indigenous peoples are impacted by resource or industrial development. I am an advocate for Indigenous data sovereignty and Indigenous-led decision making, and am currently working with Indigenous communities across Canada to develop an Indigenous-led environmental health risk assessment approach.
