His primary research interest is Haudenosaunee diplomacy from ancient times up the Great Peace of Montreal. He developed a wholistic methodology based on the mind, body, and spirit to examine history. This is a well-balanced culturally based approach, which acknowledges ethical issues when utilizing Indigenous knowledge.
