Cindy Gaudet is a Metis woman from Saskatchewan currently living in Ottawa. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies and a Masters in Canadian Studies. The title of her research work is "Metis Women and Memory: Learning to Live Beyond the Wounds of History." She is committed to supporting the remembrance of Indigenous knowledge, Indigenous teachings and Indigenous women's ways through education, prayer and ceremony.
