    Indigenous Education and Cultural Services is pleased to announce the Visiting Elder for the second semester of the 2018-2019 year. Elder Carolyn King will be available to visit classes and to have one-on-one appointments with students, staff and faculty members.

    Elder King is a former Chief of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation, the first female to be elected Chief in her community. She is currently the sole proprietor of JDI Business Services. She is engaged by government, colleges and universities, businesses and community organizations to do cross-cultural training sessions to help people develop a better understanding of Indigenous/First Nations Peoples in Canada.

    Elder King has over 25 years of work experience in the field of First Nations community development. Her extensive experiences include community development, public relations, economic development, the development of environmental planning policies and procedures, and establishing community radio. Her life and work experience bring together a lifelong commitment to the development of her First Nation community. In 2012 she was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in recognition of her support for First Nation history and the advancement of Indigenous Peoples.

    During the Elder's time here, she will be based out of the UOIT Baagwating Indigenous Student Centre (UBISC), though she will be available for appointments at both the north and downtown locations. If you would like to have her visit one of your classrooms or if you would like to arrange a one-on-one, please fill out this form. The visits will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis.
