Damien Lee

Damien Lee is a cis-gendered racially-white man who belongs with the Anishinaabeg of the northern shore of Lake Superior. He was adopted as an infant into Fort William First Nation in accordance with Anishinaabe law, and raised as Anishinaabe by his family. Damien is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Indigenous Studies at the University of Saskatchewan. He is also wrapping up his dissertation, which employs Indigenist research methodologies to understand what Anishinaabe citizenship orders look like through adoption narratives within his community. His name, Zoongde (pronounced “zohng-day”), was given to him by his friend and Elder, Gitigaa Migize (Doug Williams), of Curve Lake First Nation, in 2011.  He can be reached by email at connectwithdamien -at- gmail.com.
