Of Scottish and English descent, Caitie Blumsom is a settler in Nogojiwanong. She recently completed her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Indigenous Studies at Trent University, and will begin a Bachelor of Education program at Nipissing University in the fall. Caitie’s passion for learning and engaging with youth extends beyond her own studies, as she has spent the past few years facilitating literacy programming in library and classroom settings. Through her time at Trent, however (and previous volunteer experiences with TRACKS) she has come to understand that so much of our learning takes place beyond the four walls of a classroom. Caitie is looking forward to a summer of engaging with student-led and nature-based programming, and continuing to learn with and from the land.
