Four Indigenous retirees leave lasting impact on campus

Celebrating four exceptional Indigenous leaders who recently retired from UM

The University of Manitoba is celebrating four exceptional Indigenous leaders who recently retired after years as teachers, mentors and leaders: Brenda Lafreniere (Métis/Cree/Ojibway), Carl Stone (Anishinaabe), Fred Shore (Métis) and Noreen Wichart (Métis).

With a combined nearly 100 years of traditional and contemporary knowledge, perspectives and values shared with the university, their departures mark a monumental shift for both the Indigenous and non-Indigenous campus community. Their dedication and perseverance broke down barriers and led to significant changes at the university. They have paved the way for current and future generations and their legacies will aid UM in furthering its commitment to ensuring a safe learning and working environment for Indigenous staff, students and faculty that we will carry into our future.
