Indigenous Young Women: Speaking Our Truths, Building Our Strengths



Kirsten Lindquist

nitisyikson My name is Kirsten Lindquist. Im a Cree-Mtis woman with mixed European settler ancestry from northeast Alberta. Im currently residing on Lekwungen and WSANEC territories while I decolonize through a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance.

Throughout my journey, I have created and sustained relations with many communities. Im optimistic about our future because I have met so many incredible Indigenous youth leaders across these communities.

Im interested in learning more about how we can support youth leadership and healthy relationships through social networks, but also rooted in sustainable and grounded perspectives of place-specific land-based teachings.
