Dr. Diana Steinhauer, who is nēhiyaw (Cree) of onihcikiskwapiwinihk (Saddle Lake First Nation) in Treaty Six territory, is an educator with 30+ years of experience in teaching, curriculum development, and administration in K–12 schools and post-secondary institutions. Most importantly, she is a mother and first teacher of her two children. Diana completed her Doctorate in iyiniw pimātisiwin kiskeyitamowin (Indigenous Peoples Knowledge) at University Blue Quills. She is particularly grateful to the Elders and Knowledge Keepers who guided and mentored her in the ancestral knowledge and ways of being as a kise iskwew. Recognizing the value and work of iyiniw pimātisiwin, Diana’s work as a change agent in language, education, and governance is grounded on her late father’s adage, pimātisîtotetân kimiyikowisiwininaw, “Let us live life the way our Creator intended for us to live.”
