Dr. Brant Castellano (BA’55, LLD’91) is a leader in Indigenous education and research who has dedicated her life to the rights and well-being of Indigenous peoples. She has taught in the Queen’s Faculty of Education and currently serves as the co-chair of the Queen’s Aboriginal Council of Queen’s University. An Officer of the Order of Canada, Dr. Brant Castellano has also been awarded the Queen’s Jubilee Medal and the National Aboriginal Achievement Award.

Dr. Clare Clifton Brant (MD’65) was Canada’s first Indigenous psychiatrist and worked tirelessly to advance mental health issues relevant to Aboriginal peoples.
