A Saskatoon woman has been rewarded for her work abroad and in her community.


Priscilla Settee, a professor of Native Studies at the University of Saskatchewan, was recently named a Global Citizen by the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation.


Settee works on many projects around the world that help Indigenous people.


She calls it her contribution to the global order.


But she says there are also Indigenous issues to deal with at home, including poverty, the residential school legacy and disenfranchised Aboriginal youth.


Settee and the other award winners will be honoured on February 9th.
