Faith Decontie is a First Nations, Algonquin and Nakoda-Sioux graduate student from Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, Canada. 

She is currently studying for her Anthropology PhD at Aberdeen University with a Canada UK Foundation scholarship.

Faith grew up on a First Nation Algonquin reserve where she had a community-based upbringing. 

At the beginning of her professional career, she worked within First Nations communities and later in the Canadian public service.  She is interested in Indigenous ‘game-changers’ – those who dedicate their lives to serving their communities by mobilising policy and working towards an equitable society.

Faith was awarded the Tammy Chen Memorial Scholarship, 2023-2024.
