Dr. Zoe Todd (Red River Métis) is a practice-led artist-researcher who studies the relationships between Indigenous sovereignty and freshwater fish futures in Canada. Working across diverse disciplines, methodologies, and approaches, including artistic research-practice approaches, anthropology, archival research, and immersive land-based thinking, they collaborate with scholars and community leaders in Canada to center Indigenous legal orders and sovereignty in protecting fish habitats and fish futures, In 2018, they co-founded the Institute for Freshwater Fish Futures, which is a collaborative Indigenous-led initiative that is ‘restor(y)ing fish futures, together’ across three continents. They were a 2018 Yale Presidential Visiting Fellow, and in 2020 they were elected to the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars.
