Wolverine & Associates Inc. is a small consulting firm based in St. Johnís, Newfoundland and Labrador, owned and operated by consulting anthropologist, Peter Armitage (M.A., Memorial University, 1986). The firm provides anthropological research services related to Canadian indigenous peoples.

Armitage has worked among indigenous peoples in Labrador, northern Quebec and Ontario, the Western Arctic, and New Brunswick since the early 1980s as a graduate student, researcher and consultant on land rights/claims negotiations, historic and cultural resources, material culture, land use and occupancy, local environmental knowledge (LEK/TEK), and environmental impact assessment.

His preference is to contract directly to indigenous governments and other organizations managed or controlled by indigenous people. However, he has contracted to museums and federal and provincial government departments at the request of indigenous governments and often under the terms of agreements between these departments and  indigenous governments. He has also contracted to co-management bodies established under the terms of a land claims agreement.

Depending on the nature of the assignment, Armitage works in association with consulting and university-based social scientists (e.g. anthropologists, linguists, archaeologists, sociologists, geographers, historians, demographers, criminologists), community facilitators, health specialists, biologists, foresters, and engineers. In most cases, his non-university-based associates are independent researchers like himself; with low overhead and a history of providing quality, ethical research services to indigenous peoples.

In his work with indigenous communities, Armitage commits to:

Armitage is a member of the Canadian Anthropology Society.
