Her spirit name is Warrior Woman with the Grandmothers Behind Her. This 2nd generation residential school survivor of the Turtle Clan, is an inspiring, much-needed voice to listen to – a bridge between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
Nicole turned to her Elders and Knowledge Keepers, to begin her journey of reconnecting to her Indigenous heritage, and now shares a learned perspective, understood since time immemorial, on living in harmony with the land we live on – and with each other.
“I continue to learn so much from Nicole. I have witnessed her step up and lead with strength. She teaches and shares from the heart and you can feel this. Nicole is truly a bridge and she is meant to teach what has been passed on and what her soul knows. I am in awe of her wisdom.”
"Nicole’s presentation style was warm and engaging and helped create an emotionally safe space to discuss some very difficult issues in a deep and meaningful way. Very positive and empowering approach to learning how we can make a difference and help build together the road to reconciliation and right relations.”
