{ { { • Five Grounding Points of Clarity • } } }

On This Shared Path of Indigenous Right Relationship Making:

( •1• ) You belong to your Ancestors & the unending timeless lineage of loved ones who brought you into existence ~ Let’s feel into what’s needed to deepen into this & breathe life into the places where they live in you ~

( • 2 • ) You benefit from the countless sacrifices of your Indigenous Hosts, it’s not your fault but it’s your responsibility to learn how & show up in the impact ~ Let’s learn together what it means to put your privilege to right use in recognition of this ~

( • 3 • ) We belong closer & vulnerability is earned ~ Let’s lean into the hard to see places & reveal the tender truths that will bring our hearts near one another ~

( • 4 • ) It’s not possible to engage in meaningful change without the risk of being uncomfortable ~ Let’s be curious together in the discovery of wholesome discomfort ~

( • 5 • ) We’ve been brought together for reasons that are bigger than us, there are unspoken truths living through you, awaiting your full hearted arrival ~ Let’s hear one another in deep & power’filled ways ~

{ { { • About The Facilitator • } } }

Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is from the Eagle Clan of the Xanuksiala First Nation with Nuchanulth and Lummi Ancestry.

Her path of being a group facilitator, program designer & event producer was sparked 24 years ago & has been applied in a wide diversity of ways throughout her life.

Her background includes cultural based youth outreach with First Nations youth who are considered ‘high risk’, community building event production, Elder Care & Child Care. ​

Pulxaneeks was raised both in the Indigenous village she was born to as well as in & among the colonial construct of mainstream "Canadian" society. The work she offers of Indigenous Awareness Building comes from the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both cultures.

Pulxaneeks is a living, loving result of the coastal Indigenous village that raised her & all that survived in the lineage she was born to. She holds her hands up & honours the Elders, Mentors & huge family whose love she is a living result of & the Ancestors whose strength & resilience is flowing through her veins.

“The truth is, regardless of who you and where you're from, our Ancestors have been through a lot ~ There are many things that tried to obliterate all forms of goodness & you are living, loving proof that it didn't work”

By receiving what i offer, you're getting a front row seat in the healing journey i was born into, where i'm bringing you with me & showing you the many heart'filled & power'filled discoveries along the way. We come together in recognition of the countless sacrifices made by our Indigenous Hosts so that we may live in the privilege we do today."
