Speakers

Alex Wilson
@University of Saskatchewan
Dr. Alex Wilson (Opaskwayak Cree Nation) is professor in the Department of Educational Foundations at the University of Saskatchewan. Her scholarship has greatly contributed to building and sharing knowledge about land-based education; Two-Spirit People; Indigenous research methodologies; and anti-oppressive education. Her research and “coming in” theory has led to classroom and community practices that honour the contributions and lives of Two-Spirit People. As an Idle No More organizer and as coordinator of an Indigenous land-based Master’s program, she focuses on the prevention of violence in the lives of Indigenous peoples and the protection of land and water.
