Christina Di Carlo
Hello! My name is Christina Di Carlo and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a white-settler, 3rd generation immigrant with Italian roots. I am presently located in Windsor, Ontario, the traditional land of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprising the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomie. Windsor-Essex is within the lands honoured by the Wampum treaties, created to peacefully share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. I learn on the unceded territory of the Algonquin people, at the University of Ottawa.
As a youth who experienced the present-day Canadian education system, I have been directly exposed to the miswritten and unwritten pieces of historical teachings. My contributions to Righting History serve as supportive but not directive. The true drivers for this initiative are people, communities, and experiences. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to the provision of a collaborative platform to further identify and discuss these systemic shortcomings so that we can collectively address the legacy of oppression that we continue to see today.
