About Chantelle Richmond

I am a First Nation scholar who has trained primarily in health geography. Both from a personal and academic perspective, I am deeply concerned with the current health and social inequalities endured by Indigenous Canadians, and the contributions of environmental change to these realities.
My research draws from various methods to examine the social and environmental determinants of Indigenous health, and to better understand the dimensions linking health and place among Indigenous peoples in Canada and around the world. I have research interests in the ways that social, environmental, economic and political processes – broadly defined - work to affect the environments within which Indigenous peoples live. I am particularly interested in understanding how these environments shape access to, and the quality of, social determinants of Indigenous health.
