About this Speaker

With deep roots in the Red River, Edmonton and St. Paul des Métis, Colette Poitras now spends time between Elk Point and Edmonton, Alberta. Her father brought her up to be proudly Métis, and she is happy to pass down the knowledge and culture to her two remarkable daughters.

 

She is a member of the Métis Nation of Alberta culture team, and has served as a committee member of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee (a sub committee of the Canadian Federation of Libraries Association), as well as the chair of the subsequently formed Indigenous Matters Committee. Colette currently sits on the Public Library Accessible Resource Centre Project (PLARC) and is the Chair of the International Board on Books for Young People From Sea to Sea to Sea Indigenous Picture Book Collection Committee.

 

She believes strongly in accessibility for all and is proud to be the Indigenous Public Library Advisor for the Public Library Services Branch, within the Ministry of Municipal Affairs.
