Lisa Aymont Hunter
Lisa is a mixed-ethnicity Indigenous grandmother who identifies as Anishinaabe through her ancestral ties to the historical St. Peter’s Reserve/Red River Valley region. After graduating with honours from the Applied Counselling program at Red River College, Lisa worked in the inner city before accepting a position as Ishkode Obimiwidoon or Indigenous Cultural Networker at the River East Transcona School Division in 2007. She enjoys helping educators integrate authentic Indigenous perspectives and initiated the development of three guideline documents for staff to refer to regarding: Smudge protocol, Drum care and protocol, and inviting Elders and Knowledge Keepers into the classroom. Lisa sustains her spirit through ceremonies with her lodge family near Libau, Manitoba. It is helping and witnessing Indigenous students connect to their cultural birthright and deepen their pride in their identity that gives Lisa the greatest sense of purpose and joy in her work.
