Tansi: I am a Cree woman who grew up in the core area of Winnipeg, and throughout my life I have seen alcoholism, addictions, and violence, and even became an alcoholic myself to deal with the trauma that I carried for many years. I decided to get sober in 2016 through healing in Ceremony and helping out in places like Bear Clan Patrol, Women’s detox, Women’s AFM, Siloam Mission, and it is through this heart work that I was able to extend the compassion and understanding that was freely given to me.
