About Me

Tansi, Aniin, Boozhoo, Oki, She:kon, Greetings.

I am Innu from Northern Manitoba, born at Fort Churchill. This is my heritage, from the land of “Wapusk” (Whitebear/Polarbear). During my childhood, I lived at Lynn Lake, Manitoba. Our family was ravaged by colonization but we preservered and continued our traditional practices – hunting, fishing, land harvesting, and langauge in our family. Both of my parents worked hard to raise thier 8 children and afford a western style of education. 

I have learned to walk in two worlds; Canada provided structural and systemic Eurocultural life and, Innu parents and family provided traditional Indigenous teachings, landbased teachings, basic Innu langauge, Innu cultural and philosophical teachings.

Walking with Two Worlds, Hand-In-Hand has always guided me throughout life, as I travelled across Turtle Island, and embraced all forms of education. This has enhanced my studies, and has given me a strong lead in learning how to help others, in particular those who are also Indigenous, and struggle to deconstruct colonization impacts.
