Kainai Board of Education
Kainai Nation Treaty 7 Territory
I am a proud member of the Kainai Nation and I work as a teacher on the Blood Reserve just south of Calgary. My Blackfoot name translates to "Singing in the Wind" and I am on a journey of healing with a mission to help my people heal as well. Reconciliation is a very important topic for me and I believe in the power of working together. I love to share my culture and experiences in hopes that this may help others understand the plight of my people.
