My name is Ryan DeCaire. I am Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) and I was born and raised in Wáhta Mohawk Territory. My work is mostly focused on best practices for developing advanced oral proficiency in adults of Iroquoian languages as well as Kanien’kéha documentation for revitalization. I am Kanien’kéha learner and instructor. I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Centre for Indigenous Studies at the University of Toronto, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Hawaiian and Indigenous Language and Culture Revitalization Program at the University of Hawaii at Hilo, as well as a researcher and part-time instructor at Onkwawén:na Kentyóhkwa, a Kanien’kéha immersion program in Ohswé:ken, Six Nations of the Grand River.
