Meet your host, Lynne Cormier

Aanii, Hello, Biindegen, Welcome! My name is Lynne Cormier and I am proud to be a Two-Spirit Anishnawbe Kwe woman from the Matachewan community. I have a certificate in Social Work Service and a specialization in Sociology (BA). I have been practicing and learning about my culture and native history since I was a teenager. I understand now that we all have something to offer each other, a gift, and that essentially becomes our responsibility here on ShkagamikKwe (Mother Earth). As someone who constantly strives to be healthy and balanced in all four aspects (spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally), I try to live life in the best way possible while helping others in the process. road; be that role model or that support for others who need it. I am passionate about growing and changing within communities, starting with the individual, in families and impacting communities as a whole. With the continual change in the world, I hope and believe in a better future for the next seven generations and so on; healing, learning and sharing the teachings I have learned and practice as a lifestyle is my passion.
