Micheline creates workshops about decolonizing and Indigenous pedagogies. She also works with faculty to assist them in considering and implementing Indigenous knowledges in their teaching and curriculum development.


Micheline is a Ph.D. candidate in Indigenous Studies. While she is currently a guest on Treaty 1 territory, she grew up in Ktaqmkuk, the unceded lands of the Mi'kmaq. Before joining the Centre, she worked as a Research Assistant and Archive Development Coordinator on the Digital Archives and Marginalized Communities Project, which created separate but related digital archives titled: the Post-Apology Residential School Database, the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women Database, and the Sex Work Database. She was then invited to join the Sex Work Activist Histories Project as a Senior Research Assistant. Micheline has also been an instructor in the Department of Indigenous Studies and has worked as the Research Coordinator at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. Indigenous knowledges, including living in ways that honour msit no’kmaq, or all my relations, are foundational to how Micheline lives her life, both personally and professionally. Micheline is passionate about working to create a socially just and anti-colonial world and is excited to be working in the capacity of Indigenous Initiatives Educator.
