Gregory Hitch is a Ph.D. candidate in American Studies at Brown University and an organizer with Menīkānaehkem. Greg organizes the energy sovereignty initiative at Menīkānaehkem and works collaboratively on other projects as needed.


In addition, Greg is writing a dissertation, tentatively titled, “The Forest Keepers: An Environmental History of the Menominee Nation from Colonization to Climate Change,” which investigates how European and American settler colonialism and capitalism disrupted Menominee relationships with the land, waterways, and ecosystems of the western Great Lakes region. Using archival and ethnographic methods, he tells a story of Menominee survival, adaptation, and resurgence through their historical and contemporary struggles for environmental and climate justice.
