TBA: Allyship with First Nations Communities

Please join the Rotary Club of Edmonton West on Monday March 15 2021 as we host Dr. Patricia Makokis who will speak to us about "Allyship with First Nations Communities". Patricia Makokis, Ed.D. is acclaimed as one of Canada's most outstanding Aboriginal leaders. She is an author, speaker and a pioneer for Aboriginal education, health and values. Patricia is the recipient of many awards for her exceptional work in advancing opportunities for her people. She was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal Award and the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of San Diego amongst others. Patricia has a Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.), with a major in leadership, from the University of San Diego. 

Dr. Makokis is an authority on Aboriginal values. She lives them daily. Residing on the Saddle Lake Cree Nation in Northern Alberta, she has embraced both the Cree culture and the western world view. Patricia is a testament to the fact that "education and hard work are the two most important factors to relieve the plight of Aboriginal people in Canada today". She is a proud Cree. This is not something that she just preaches. She's passionate about it and she puts it into practice.
