Margaret Kress delivered a talk about Winona LaDuke, the internationally-renowned land defender and author who lives and works on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota, on November 25.
Dr. Margaret Kress, Tahkwaki Waapikwani Iskwew, was born in Saskatchewan on Treaty Four territory and the Métis homelands. She proudly embraces her Michif ancestry and continues to honour her French, English and German relations. Margaret works closely with Elders, knowledge keepers and community leaders throughout Canada to ensure Indigenous truths are brought forth and right action is taken.
As an Adjunct Professor at the University of New Brunswick, Kress supports graduate students as they focus on critical issues associated with Indigenous governance, child welfare, and education. She is the recipient of several national and provincial grants and has conducted academic and community-based research to support initiatives led by Indigenous communities.
Kress is the author of selected publications of the Canadian Women Studies, kimiwan, Of Land & Living Skies: A community Journal on Place, Land, and Learning, and Honouring Indigenous Women-Hearts of Nation. Currently, Kress is on a learning path with elders across our lands as she embraces traditional and plant medicine teachings in her daily life.
