About

I am the Member of Parlaiment for Winnipeg Centre. I was a Program Director for the Aboriginal Focus Programs (University of Manitoba) until 2015.

I have degrees in music, education and anthropology. I work on issues related to university entrance programs, Indian Residential Schools, the military and music. I earned my PhD in 2011 from Laval University, only the 2nd Aboriginal person in its 350 year history to earn such a degree. My dissertation is entitled Evaluating Aboriginal Curricula using a Cree-Métis Perspective with a regard towards Indigenous knowledge.

I also have extensive experience in administration earned with the military through 15 years of service in various units from combat, medical and even musical military organizations. I retired from the military as the Sgt at Arms of the 5th Field Ambulance based in Valcartier, Quebec. I had a radio program At the Edge of Canada on UMFM in Winnipeg.

I am Cree (Red Pheasant First Nation) from Saskatchewan, but was raised in Calgary. I am happily married, have four wonderful boys and one beautiful princess.
