Sara Leah Hindy is a Mi’kmaw mother, analyst, educator and lifelong learner from Elmastukwek, Ktaqmkuk (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). Sara Leah holds two degrees from Memorial University, a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education, and is currently working on her Master of Education. Although her career path began in the classroom, it has led her to community and to Land to bridge her understanding of education and Indigenous identity. Through community-based work, Sara Leah has supported land-based learning, developed education partnerships, created Indigenous teaching resources and facilitated knowledge mobilization. Her current work focuses on providing Indigenous cultural awareness and a decolonized, Indigenized lens in research. Her commitment to education is deeply rooted in her love for her two sons, Oliver and Reid, who inspire, motivate and remind her daily of the importance of Indigenous education for all students. In Indigenous Ways of Assessing, Sara Leah will share personal experiences and insights on Indigenous education as it relates to educational policy, curricula and practices.
