Research Assistant, RFNG Secretariat
Grace Dupasquier is a Master of Public Policy and Administration student at Carleton University. A settler, she is of mixed European descent, and was born and raised on the unceded shared territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, səl̓ílwətaʔɬ, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm Nations.
Grace is deeply passionate about finding ways to support the upholding of Indigenous rights. For her undergraduate credential, she finished a Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies, a customizable degree which allows students to pursue a learning path suited to their particular interests. In Grace’s case, her undergraduate work developed into a focus on learning as much as she could about Indigenous-settler relations – in environments both inside and outside the classroom – so that she could be a partner in helping to chart a better path forward. She has continued this learning through her work at the graduate level.
