About Me

Many Indigenous people have certain protocols for introductions. In keeping with the protocols of my Ojibwe ancestors, please allow me to introduce myself first Ojibwemong:

Boozhoo, Mark Bellcourt niin indizhinikaaz zhaanaashiimong. Bimose Inini idash nindigo Ojibwemong. Gaawiin ningikenimaasii indoodem. Gaa-Waabaabiganikaag niin indoojibaa. Ashkibugziibing nindayendaa noongom.
Greetings, my English name is Mark Bellcourt. However, I am called Walking Man in Ojibwe. I do not know my clan. I come from White Earth, but now I live in St. Paul.

My undergraduate and master’s degrees are in educational psychology and counseling. I earned my Ed.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2005 in higher education policy and administration. My research interests are in Indigenous worldviews of math and science and how they can be better integrated into the mainstream curriculum. I currently have a dual appointment at the University of Minnesota in both the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) and in the College of Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS).  In the CEHD, I am a senior academic adviser who works primarily with students in the Family Social Science (FSoS) program.  In CFANS, I coordinate a first year program for Access to Success (ATS) students, teach classes in Native American ways of knowing the environment, and help coordinate the North Star STEM Alliance efforts within the college

Drop-in Advising
