Lori Campbell is nēhiyaw āpihtākosisān (Cree-Métis), originally from Treaty 6 territory in northern Saskatchewan. She is an intergenerational survivor of the Indian Residential School system and a child from the Sixties Scoop generation. Lori is proud to say that over the last 25 years she has managed to locate and contact not only her birth mom, but all 6 of her living siblings – scattered across three provinces in what is currently known as Canada. Her life experiences have contributed not only to her understanding of Indigenous issues, but also to her passion for education. Lori holds two undergraduate degrees (Indigenous Studies and Psychology), a master’s degree in Adult Education and is currently working towards a PhD in Social Justice Education through the University of Toronto. Currently, she holds the position of Director, Shatitsirótha’ Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre and looks after the Indigenous Studies academic programming at St. Paul’s University College.
