Executive Director and Founder, Think Indigenous Inc
Chris Scribe, Nakota/Nehiyaw (Assiniboine/Cree) from the Carry the Kettle Nakoda Oyade & Kinosaeo Sipi Cree Nation, is grounded in his Indigenous culture, language and tradition. His worldview, foundationally built on the life teachings of his father and grandmother, Chris has become an advocate for Indigenous Knowledge in Education.
He received his Bachelor of Education through the Indian Teacher Education Program at the University of Saskatchewan (USask), a program in which he accredits much of his academic and professional success. In 2012, Chris completed his Master of Education in the field of educational administration focusing much of his research on the Nakota worldview of leadership. He is currently a PhD candidate in the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan concentrating his research on Pre-Colonial Leadership Stories of the Indigenous People.
Chris’ experience in education is extensive; he has taught every grade from 2-12 in international, national, provincial and First Nation education systems. He has also served the roles of a special needs educator, acting principal, principal superintendent, and Director of Canada’s largest and most successful Indigenous Teacher Education Program.
Currently, Chris is the Executive Director and Founder of Think Indigenous Inc., home to Canada’s largest grassroots Indigenous Education Conference. He is extremely honoured to share his poem “Letter to John A. McDonald” with the Wicihitowin Conference this year.
