Graduate Student

Jaydum HuntJaydum Hunt is Mohawk with ties to the Bay of Quinte First Nation which is part of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy. She is a registered massage therapist, a sole support parent of two beautiful daughters, an executive member of the Waterloo Indigenous Student Association, and a master’s student in Industrial Organizational psychology at the University of Waterloo. She always knew that she was Indigenous but was raised in a western urban setting without the opportunity for a connection to her Indigeneity. During her second year of University she began to learn about her culture and gain a deeper understanding of her Mohawk identity. It has been five years since that time and she has learned a lot about herself as an Indigenous woman and her community. Jaydum situates herself in the research as someone who is rediscovering and revitalizing Indigenous research methods, constantly learning and adding to her repertoire of knowledge, in hopes that the research she is undertaking will help all of her relations.
