My name is Haley Julien and I am tasked as a co-lead for developing SSHRC research. I am a 4th year Dalhousie University student in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in law, society and justice with a minor in Indigenous studies. I am from Millbrook, Nova Scotia. Both growing up and currently I have danced traditionally as a fancy shawl dancer for the past 10 years. I have had the honor of Head Dancing and coordinating multiple powwows in Mi'kma'ki. I have grown up practicing traditions such as sweat lodges and ceremonies, being able to learning from Mi'kma'ki elders. For the past two summers I have worked for Toronto Dominion as a part of their Indigenous Internship opportunities. I have plans on furthering my education with a Law degree from Dalhousie University. I have a deep passion for Indigenous resiliency. My goal is to become educated to fully assist in defending Indigenous rights in Mi’kma’ki. Growing up on reserve, I have experienced the effects firsthand of trauma and inequalities so it means a lot to me that I can be a good role model for youth, as well as make a difference in coordinating research contributing to youth well-being.
