Congratulations to Dr. Shauneen Pete, who was the recipient of the 2016 Peace Builder Award on March 15 at the Regina Intercultural Dialogue Institute’s 4th Annual Friendship Dinner.
Shauneen’s advocacy for indigenization, reconciliation, and Aboriginal education were acknowledged as critical to educating generations of peace builders. She spoke eloquently about our shared responsibilities to live out the TRC Calls to Action, to be in ethical relation with Indigenous peoples of this land, and to work collectively toward a better future.
On behalf of the Faculty of Education, thank you Shauneen for your hard work and unwavering commitment to creating a better world for all.
