Breaking barriers and creating Indigenous STEM content.
Me, Myself & I
Hi I am Dawn and I’ve been a professional Educational Consultant for over 20 years and I come from Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation.
From my own childhood, I can remember the day my parents bought me a chemistry kit in Grade 4. Since then, I have pursued a life-long ambition of becoming a chemist and passing on my love and passion for science to children, youth, and adults.
Throughout my education and professional career, I have responded actively to rectifying the lack of Indigenous STEM role models and Indigenized STEM content.
In my work, I reinstitute Indigenized STEM content that includes Indigenous Elders’ and Knowledge Keepers; and cultural, linguistic and land based teachings.
I also mentor my two Indigenous daughters to see the world of science & math with culture & language.
