Jamie is Anishinaabe from Sandy Bay Ojibway First Nation. Currently, Jamie is a graduate student in the Indigenous Studies Master’s Program at the University of Manitoba. She received a Bachelor of Arts Advanced Degree in Sociology. Jamie’s research focuses on investigating the history of the Sandy Bay Indian Residential School to shift discourse toward a decolonial understanding and promote healing for Survivors and descendants of the school. She hopes her work will advance reconciliation through the commemoration of former students, reclamation of community history, and furthering of public knowledge. Jamie is thrilled to contribute to the History in the Hotseat: Colonialism and the Knowing and Teaching of Canada’s Past for the Centre for Human Rights Research.
