Professor Thrush teaches at the University of British Columbia on unceded Musqueam territory, where he is professor of history and associate faculty in Critical Indigenous Studies. His book Native Seattle; Histories from the Crossing Over Place has been described as ‘the best book, by far, … about Indians and cities.’ Thrush did his doctorate at the University of Washington working with Dr. John Findlay. He served as an intern at the Museum of History and Industry where he was admired for his depth of knowledge about Seattle history. He is also author of Indigenous London; Native Travelers at the Heart of Empire. Thrush is currently working on two projects: a cross-genre exploration of historical trauma and landscape set in his hometown of Auburn and a cultural and environmental history of shipwrecks on the Northwest Coast.
