Dr. Adela Tesarek Kincaid is an instructor and researcher in the International Indigenous Studies Program at the University of Calgary and adjunct professor at the University of Regina. Previously, she was a Faculty Researcher at the Applied Research and Innovation Center at Selkirk College. Her expertise is in rural community-based research and animal-human relationships. She is an emerging scholar with a Ph.D. in human geography which was based on studying various communities and their reactions to free-roaming horses. Her postdoctoral work was recognized by RCE SK, a United Nations University acknowledged Regional Center of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development, and focused on ecomuseums that are locally organized and community-driven and aim to increase our understanding of the role that citizen science, education, and heritage-related activities can play in sustainable community development. Adela is a published author in the methodological area of situational analysis which she has applied to animal-based wellness programs that account for Indigenous relationships with animals.
