Join us for our first webinar in our 2021 Indigenous Conversations series, as we welcome Former Chief of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Carolyn King.
Carolyn delivers her unique, informative workshop, Indian 101. She has been engaged by government, colleges and universities, businesses and community organizations to do cross-cultural training sessions and presentations to help people develop a better understanding of Indigenous and First Nations people in Canada.
A recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, in recognition of her support for First Nation history and advancement of the Indigenous Peoples, she has been a driving force in the identification of the significance of current and historic sites within traditional territorial lands and the preservation of First Nations traditions.
Carolyn King received the Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest honours in 2020. Presented by the governor general, the Order honours people whose service shapes our society; whose innovations ignite our imaginations; and whose compassion unites our communities.
Carolyn’s appointment was for her expertise in community development, her advocacy of Indigenous-led initiatives, and her efforts to improve Canadians’ understanding of First Nations.
We are also honoured to include Carolyn as one of the Legends Row 2019/2020 Inductees as a Legend of Arts & Culture acknowledging her many significant contributions such as the “Moccasin Identifier Project”. Carolyn King has been an ambassador for her people for over 30 years and has made a life-long commitment to help people develop a better understanding of Indigenous and First Nations People of Canada.
We would like to acknowledge with thanks, the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund for their support of this program.
