Wesley-Esquimault, Cynthia

Dr. Cynthia Wesley-Esquimaux is the first Indigenous Chair for Truth and Reconciliation on behalf of Lakehead University, Thunder Bay and Orillia.  Her research and academic writing is directed towards understanding the continuing transmission of unresolved intergenerational trauma and grief, primarily within the Indigenous community of Canada.  We were honoured to have her as our keynote speaker at Crestwood’s 2016 Human Rights Symposium, “Towards Reconciliation”.  Dr. Wesley-Esquimault was interviewed by Crestwood students Will Paisley, Ted Kang, and Tavlor Frankfort.
