Ann Deer

Associate Director, Indigenous Initiatives
Ann Deer

Ann (she/her) is a Kanyen'keha:ka (People of the Flint; Mohawk; Wolf Clan) professional, educator, and member of the Akwesasne First Nation. Her passion and work are related to community building and exploring the world through an Indigenous lens to facilitate truth and reconciliation. This involves a deep understanding of power, privilege, racism, and bias from an Indigenous perspective, and the tools to be a changemaker.

Ann previously worked at Queen’s University, where she served in the capacity of Indigenous Recruitment & Initiatives Coordinator at the Smith School of Business. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Native Studies and Canadian Studies from Trent University and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from St. Lawrence University.

She is a community builder who combines education, life experience, and research based on the Two Row Wampum Treaty teachings to live side by side as brothers and sisters. Ann is looking forward to helping McGill fulfill its commitments to truth and reconciliation and furthering our relationships with Indigenous communities.
