Dr. Alex Wilson (Opaskwayak Cree Nation) is an Associate Professor and Academic Director of the Aboriginal Education Research Centre at the University of Saskatchewan. Her scholarship has greatly contributed to building and sharing knowledge about land-based education; two-spirit people; indigenous research methodologies; and anti-oppressive education.

As an Idle No More organizer and as coordinator of an Indigenous land-based Master’s program, she focuses on the prevention of violence in the lives of Indigenous peoples and the protection of land and water. Dr. Wilson is a recipient of a 2016 Nellie Award for human rights leadership and the 2016 Peter Corren Award for outstanding achievement in LGBTQ education.
