Aanii my name is Shawna. I have ancestry from Temagami First Nations, Ireland, and Scotland. Indoodem Gaag (My Clan is the Porcupine Clan). I am currently living in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty Territory. I have worked on Indigenous Food Sovereignty and Indigenous Land-based Education projects. I have a BA in Environmental Studies and a Post-Graduate in International Development. I am excited to be working with CRE and collaborating with its amazing staff to help advance reconciliation as the Operations and Process Manager.
I am learning to be an earth worker. I had the gift of learning about earth working from Joce Two Crows Tremblay. This summer I grew a three sisters garden and medicines. I was gifted some beautiful Bear Island Chippewa Corn from Nicole at the Mashkiki Collective and can’t wait to start growing this relative in Summer 2020.
