Dr. Shauneen Pete, Global Citizen Awards profile

Dr. Shauneen Pete, an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina, who also serves as the executive lead on Indigenization, was recognized (along with David Wessel, Wilma Bell-Wessel) for her dedication and leadership in global and Indigenous education at the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC) Global Citizen Awards, February 3.

“At first I was surprised to have been nominated for the award and as I found out more about it, and about the organization, I was very honoured,” says Dr. Pete. “The selection committee asked some very interesting questions, which made me think about what it means to be a global citizen and for me it goes back to the teachings of the elders and our responsibility to respect and care for each other, not just in our immediate family, but in the larger community and globally.”
