Jan Hare is an Indigenous scholar and educator and is the Associate Dean for Indigenous Education in the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in western Canada. She is also the Director the Native Indigenous Teacher Education Program (NITEP) and holds the Professorship of Indigenous Education in Teacher Education. Jan began her career as an elementary school teacher, later turning her attention to how research can inform practice in ways that are more inclusive of Indigenous ways of knowing. Her teaching and research is committed to improving educational outcomes for Indigenous learners with the goal of centering Indigenous knowledge systems within educational reform from early childhood education to post-secondary. The opportunities and limitation that reconciliation holds for changing Indigenous settler-relations has inspired her teaching.
