Aboriginal advocate

Linda Capperauld, director of Equity Services, is pleased to welcome Sheila Grantham into her temporary appointment to the Centre for Aboriginal Culture and Education. In this role, she will work closely with Aboriginal Cultural Liaison Officer, Irvin Hill.

Ms. Grantham is a master’s student in Canadian Studies at Carleton University. She has provided leadership in numerous campus activities over the past few years. Sheila was instrumental in establishing the Aboriginal Service Centre for students; she participated in the organization of last year’s Indigenous Academic Conference at Carleton and she is currently part of a group whose goal is to develop a “Word Warrior” bursary to promote Aboriginal research and support Aboriginal students.

She has worked with a diverse group of M├ętis and First Nations communities throughout Canada both on and off-reserve, and also has strong connections to local Aboriginal organizations.
