ABOUT ME

As an adult educator whose primary focus is on teaching Indigenous education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, I have witnessed how transformative this learning is in my students. 

 

Over the years, I have been honoured to continue my digital storywork with Metis community members and educators. In November 2020, working with members of the Rupertsland Institute education team, we premiered the launch of educational resources created with Metis community members.

I have also focused a great deal of my scholarship on the topic of working towards reconciliation through education. In 2016, I worked with colleagues to create, design, and deliver the Indigenous Education: A call to action program to 91 students.
