Reconciliation and Decolonization Alumni Award Recipient
Marjorie Dumont’s ancestral name is C’tan of the Wet’suwet’en and Gitxsan Nations. She is a distinguished Indigenous educator and leader deeply committed to reconciliation and decolonization. “Marjorie’s teaching practice has spanned many settings over her 25-year long career, both on and off reserve, rural and urban, in mainstream as well as Indigenous-focus schools.”
Marjorie’s dedication shines through her innovative lesson plans and resources, which educates students about Indigenous cultures and histories, and also empower them as agents of justice. Her influence extends beyond the classroom, as she bridges Indigenous and settler communities within the BC Teachers Federation (BCTF), advocating for anti-racism and decolonization. She has also contributed significantly to the BC Teachers Council, lowering barriers for educators from diverse backgrounds.
Notably, Marjorie has played a pivotal role in decolonizing teacher education programs in British Columbia’s post-secondary institutions. Her leadership style emphasizes listening, respect, humility, and reciprocity, highlighting the importance of land, language, and culture in identity and belonging.
Marjorie is an exceptional leader-educator, and her profound impact on reconciliation and decolonization efforts in educational institutions has and will continue to serve the community and inspire communities for years to come.
