Passing of Aboriginal Historian Olive Patricia Dickason

The Aboriginal community grieves the departure from this world of a great Métis women, the historian Dr. Olive Patricia Dickason. It is Difficult to even begin to describe the importance of the intellectual legacy of such a thinker. This loss is heavy since Olive Dickason, through her work and through the example of courageous living, has marked all members of our Canadian society.

La communauté autochtone pleure le départ de ce monde d'une grande femmes métisses, l'historien Dr. Olive Patricia Dickason. Il est difficile même de commencer à décrire l'importance du legs intellectuel de cette grande penseure. Cette perte est très lourde puisque Olive Dickason, par son oeuvre et per l'exemple d'une vie courageuse, a marqué chaque membre de notre société canadienne.
