2021 FNTI GRADUATE
Program: Social Service Worker
Name/Spirit Name: Cassandra Valliere-Leonard (White Owl)
Community: Cochrane ON
Teachings & Future Goals: Traditional teachings and ceremonies have helped me rediscover myself, my connections, and helped me live a good way of life. The knowledge I learned during this program has helped me as I grew as an individual, as a mother and as a wife. I want to be able to help make the same difference in the lives of those around me and to share the knowledge I learned on my journey. It’s crucial to help ourselves, so that we may be able to help others. I’m uncertain what the future will bring but I’m more confident in my ability to help those in need.
