Special Guest Bio

Ryan Neepin is a member of Fox Lake Cree Nation. He is an occasional elementary school teacher with the TDSB and is a PhD student in the department of Curriculum Studies and Teacher Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto where he is focusing his studies and Indigenous Education and Decolonization.

Facilitator Bio

Erika Finestone is a doctoral candidate in Social-Cultural Anthropology at the University of Toronto, an Indigenous Studies instructor at The University of Victoria, and a project manager with the Indigenous Education Department at University of Victoria. Her doctoral research focusses on urban Indigenous family resiliency. Erika is also the co-developer and facilitator of the Honouring Family Resiliency workshop. As a settler of Polish and Romanian descent and Jewish ancestry, Erika’s journey towards this work grew through engaging more deeply with her own people’s story of survival and resistance during and after the Jewish Holocaust. Her approach to this work is energized by an intention to listen open-heartedly to stories of survivance, and to work collaboratively with communities to alter colonial power relations and support Indigenous lifeways.
