{ { { • 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” - Pulxaneeks

"In this experience of being Indigenous, i have a responsibility to contribute the journey of reparations we're undergoing as a people, to do my part, to stay in my heart & go where it leads, one truth at a time. 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. Our Ancestors smile upon this coming together of paths."
