Angela Mark is a proud Anishinaabe-kwe from Garden River First Nation on her mother’s side with settler ancestry on her father’s side. Angela is passionate about Indigenous business, and women’s entrepreneurship and prosperity. She brings to the research team over 30 years of experience as an Indigenous entrepreneur.
Angela graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Indigenous Studies from Trent University and is excited about bringing her understanding of the history of Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships. This includes the economic, social, cultural, and political issues, to enhance a two-eyed seeing framework and perspective.
A tremendous addition to CCAB’s work, Angela’s skills and knowledge of Indigenous research design and processes, combined with her personal journey in reclaiming her Anishinaabe culture, language, knowledge, traditions, and worldviews ignites her passion to ensure prosperity and equality are restored for Indigenous peoples across Canada.
Angela is grateful to live on the traditional lands of the Michi Saagiig Anishinaabeg within the Williams Treaty Territory in the beautiful Kawartha Lakes region, north of Peterborough, Ontario. In addition to Indigenous related research, Angela loves learning, creating beauty and helping others to thrive.
