Terri Isabel Cardinal is a mother, wife, daughter, sister, employee, student, friend and advocate from Saddle Lake, AB – Treaty 6. Her Cree name is Golden Eagle Woman. She has two beautiful children –Belladonna and Viper Jr., and is married to her husband of 6 years. She is the Director at the Early Childhood Center in her community and working towards a MSW at the University of Blue Quills. Terri’s community work is guided by the belief that traditional practices are the way to addressing the social issues resulting from intergenerational trauma.
Adanchilla Pauls comes from the Tahltan and Tlingit nations and is a proud member of the Champagne and Ashihik First Nation. Adanchilla is their traditional name and means strong, powerful, little women. She has been beading since the age of 6 and started ‘Adanchilla Designs’ at the age of 12. Taught by the matriarchs in their life, they are passionate about being on the land, fishing, education and working with youth.
Larissa Coombs is a 20-year-old First Nations woman from Takla Landing, BC. She comes from an Indigenous background of the Carrier Sekani and Gitzan Nations from her late grandparents. Larissa is currently in her second year of working closely with the youth and Elders in her community. With each project she works on, she becomes closer to her people and gains knowledge from everyone she works with.
