Dr. Joseph Couture (1930–2007), known affectionately as “Dr. Joe,” stood at the center of some of the greatest political, social, and intellectual struggles of Aboriginal peoples in contemporary Canada. A profound thinker and writer, as well as a gifted orator, he easily walked two paths, as a respected Elder and traditional healer and as an \ educational psychologist, one of the first Aboriginal people in Canada to receive a PhD. His work challenged and transformed long-held views of Canada’s Indigenous peoples, and his vision and leadership gave direction to many of the current fields of Aboriginal scholarship.
