Paige Raibmon, Editor

Paige Raibmon is an associate professor of History at the University of British Columbia. She joined BC Studies as co-editor in July 2018. Her research interests deal with Indigenous peoples and colonialism on the Northwest Coast in the nineteenth and twentieth-centuries. She has particular interests in women’s history, oral history, social movements, environmental justice, and the political implications of cultural representation.

She is a senior fellow in the Successful Societies research group, funded by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. This group is engaged in a long-term, interdisciplinary study of inequality, its causes and implications.

She recently completed a collaborative book manuscript, co-written with a Sliammon Elder and her grand-daughter. The book is a first-person, “told-to” narrative of Sliammon teachings and her own life experiences. Paige is now engaged with the next phrase of this SSHRC-funded project which, in partnership with a Mellon Foundation-funded UBC Press project, entails the development of a digital, multi-media companion book intended for use as curriculum in elementary and high schools.

She is simultaneously working on a study of two late-twentieth-century relocations of the Mowachaht-Muchalaht First Nation on Vancouver Island. This work considers the impact of these moves on the physical and social health of the community, and provides a window onto the twentieth-century transformations that have characterized many Indigenous peoples along the coast and throughout British Columbia. An essay based on this research appeared in the April 2018 issue of Comparative Studies in Society and History.
