Rita Corbiere is an Anishinaabe Elder and a remarkable educator whose wisdom has been generously shared with many learners. Rita has spent the last decade collaborating with Laurentian University, where she has made significant contributions to the academic literature in her capacity as Elder, research collaborator and co-author.  Her role has been critical in integrating Anishinaabe perspectives in academic research and helping to frame research in ways that acknowledge and contribute to Anishinaabe knowledge.

“Throughout a working lifetime, Rita Corbiere has demonstrated her passion and her commitment to educating future generations in her community of Wikwemikong. She has been a role model to young people through her achievements in teaching, community education, research and mentorship.”
