colonial violence. I also specialized in Anishinaabemowin through The Chanie Wenjack School of
Indigenous Studies. I am proud to be of Anishinaabe heritage and will always be a lifelong
I am currently working within Indigenous Education at the elementary and secondary school
levels at DDSB and DCDSB as well as teaching at Durham College and Fleming College. I am

Jenn Henderson, Melanie O’Neill and James Mackinnon who are helping to guide me along this
path of learning and for opportunities such as these to learn, celebrate and play together.
