Helen Robinson-Settee is currently the Director with the Indigenous Inclusion Directorate with Manitoba Education and Training. She has worked with the Department of Education and Training since 1995. Some of her work includes representing Manitoba on the Council of Ministers Education Canada committees on Indigenous education. She also participates on community based committees such as Ka Ni Kanichihk Inc. Council and Indigenous Learning Circle. Previous to her work as a Director, she was an education consultant and a teacher in Winnipeg School Division, which included teaching at the two Aboriginal inner-city schools - Children of the Earth and Niji Mahkwa. She was born and raised in the inner city of Winnipeg and always wanted to come back to teach in the schools where she was a student. She was convinced that with the racism she felt as a student in her adolescent years that she had to influence change by being a role model and to be a change agent in her adult life. Aside from being an educator, she is the mother of two adult sons, Craig who lives in Vancouver and Kevin who lives in Winnipeg and a grandmother to Ogimaabinens who lives in Ontario.
