Celia Haig-Brown

Professor Celia Haig-Brown, Faculty of Education, York University, teaches courses in research methodologies and community education. Her latest book With Good Intentions: EuroCanadian and Aboriginal Relations in Colonial Canada (2006) is co-edited with David Nock. Her best known work, Resistance and Renewal: Surviving the Indian Residential School, is still in print 20 years after its first publication and is read in universities and communities across the country. She has written numerous articles and presented her work in national and international conferences. She has worked with Maori scholars and is currently investigating the relevance of some Maori models of success for students in Aboriginal contexts in Ontario. Her current SSHRC funded project, Education as Regeneration: Processes of Decolonization, relies on collaborations with community members as it focuses on the place of Indigenous knowledges in education broadly defined. This includes her first foray into documentary film.
