6. Sandra Lovelace
Ms. Sandra Lovelace Nicholas has been a driving force in securing rights for
Aboriginal women in Canada, and is also a wonderful example of the impact
one woman can have when she sets out to correct an injustice. Challenging
discriminatory provisions of the Indian Act, which deprived Aboriginal women
of their status when they married non-Aboriginals, she was instrumental in
bringing the case before the United Nations Human Rights Commission and
lobbying for the 1985 legislation which reinstated the rights of First Nation
women and their children in Canada. In 1990, she was awarded the Order of
Canada, and in 1992, she received the Governor General's Award in
Commemoration of the Persons Case. A Maliseet woman from the Tobique
First Nation in New Brunswick, Sandra Lovelace Nicholas' efforts have
helped advance the cause of civil rights in this country, and her pride,
strength and determination have made her a role model for many Aboriginal
women. A proud mother of 4, she studied at St. Thomas University for 3
years and has a degree in residential construction from the Maine Northern
Technical College. She continues to make her home on the Tobique First
Nation. Sandra Lovelace Nicholas will be sitting in the Senate as a member
of the Liberal Party of Canada.
Sandra Lovelace, a Maliseet woman from the Tobique Reserve in New Brunswick,
belongs to the second wave of feminism of Canada. Thanks to her successful
appeal to the Human Rights Committee of the United Nations, Native women
in Canada no longer lose their status under the Indian Act through marriage to a
non-Native man.
