About Dr. Ruth Green
Ruth Green is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at York University. Ruth uses She/her pronouns. She has served as the co-chair of the Indigenous Council at York University and the Special Advisor to the President on Indigenous Initiatives. She is an activist turned accidental academic. Green identifies as an urban Indigenous person, and is a citizen of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.
Green is from the Mohawk Nation and is a member of the Turtle Clan. She was born a Canadian but was 1/2 disenfranchised when she was 10 years old. By the time she was 34.5 years old she was completely disenfranchised. She acknowledges the privileges she gets in a world of identity politics to be governed by legislation that is 100 years older than she is! She also acknowledges her paternal Celtic heritage.
Green likes to think about Indigenous education and social issues that impact Indigenous communities. She has a PhD from OISE in Adult Education and Community Development, an MSW and a BSW from Ryerson University.
