Clifford Atleo, Jr. (Nuu-chah-nulth & Tsimshian) is a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of Alberta. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Master of Arts degree in Indigenous Governance, both from the University of Victoria. His research critiques “Aboriginal capitalism” and looks at alternative economic practices rooted in Nuu-chah-nulth principles. He hopes that his work de-centers the more destructive influences of settler colonialism and contributes to the ongoing revitalization of Indigenous communities, centering Indigenous principles and traditions.
