Assistant Professor in Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, University of Toronto

Jennifer Brant, first and foremost a mother of two boys, belongs to the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk Nation) with family ties to Six Nations of the Grand River Territory and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. Jennifer is an Assistant Professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. Her work focuses on Indigenous Maternal Pedagogies and creating ethical spaces for cross-cultural and anti-racist dialogue. For Jennifer, working on “Forever Loved: Exposing the Hidden Crises of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada” was a call for an immediate and effective response to racialized and sexualized violence. Jennifer positions Indigenous literatures as powerful narratives that humanize Indigenous peoples through multiple calls for justice, and accountability and extends this revolutionary body of work to inspire resistance, rebirth and renewal.
