Angela Nardozi is a guest on Turtle Island, with both sides of her family originating in Italy. She is a certified teacher and received her Ph.D. from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education in 2016. Her passion for working alongside Indigenous communities began in 2008, after living and working in a Treaty Three First Nation.
After completing her MA research with that community, she returned to Toronto to work with her own community - non-Indigenous educators. From 2011 to 2016 she was the Project Manager of the Deepening Knowledge Project, where she delivered workshops to over 6000 teacher candidates about Indigenous histories and current communities, and the responsibilities of Settler educators in teaching this content.
Angela is an engaging speaker and has almost a decade of experience communicating to a vast array of audiences about Indigenous/Canadian issues and research. Her current work spans the corporate, non-profit, and educational sectors. She has been invited to speak to community and religious groups and has extensive experience with academic audiences as a keynote, invited and peer-reviewed speaker.
Angela has delivered hundreds of workshops to students from kindergarten to graduate level. She has channeled some of what she has learned from these experiences into Listen & Learn, a monthly newsletter for educators interested in teaching issues and resources related to Indigenous topics.
