She is currently a doctoral candidate in Indigenous and Canadian Studies at Carleton University and recipient of the 2018 Vanier Federal Research Fellowship. Her thesis focuses on the relationship with Lake Abitibi and applies the methodology of "thinking with the" eau "to question the social and territorial issues related to the situation of continuous colonial occupation, such as the claim of the Apitipik national historic site. Trycia also writes on the intersection between the phenomenon of self-autochthonization and hunting rights in the Algonquin territory and as well as the Viens commission. She has also worked as a political analyst for the Assembly of First Nations, taught at the university on the subject, and was involved in indigenous solidarity movements, such as Unsettling Canada150 from Idle no More. She wants to be able to continue to support the movements of decolonization and First Nations sovereignty. She currently occupies the role of research agent for native files within the continuing education department of UQAT and lives on the unceded territory of Abitibiwinni Aki. She feels honored to be able to join the First Nations Expedition.
