Margaret Robinson

 A rising academic star, Dr. Robinson is a professor of Indigenous Studies at Dalhousie University. She is a bisexual and two-spirit scholar from Eski’kewaq, Nova Scotia, and a member of the Lennox Island First Nation. Her research focuses on social justice, gender, sexuality, and food movements.

A prolific scholar, Dr. Robinson draws from Indigenous traditions and eco-feminism to advocate for Indigenous veganism. She frames veganism as “a spiritual practice that recognizes humans and other animals as having a shared personhood.” Her articles include: “Veganism and Mi’kmaq legends” (Canadian Journal of Native Studies), “Animal Personhood in Mi’kmaq Perspective” (Societies), and “Animals in Indigenous Spiritualities” (Journal of Indigenous Social Development).
