I grew up in Prince George, British Columbia, come from Cree, Ojibway, and Metis descendence, and I am adopted as a Blackfoot. I was given the sacred name of Apiskonakii (Far Shooter) by Elder Miksika'am, and was told I "will always aim far and I will always hit my targets." Mohkinstis (Calgary, Alberta), has been my home for about 10 years, and I envision myself working in Indigenous Health here in Treaty 7. A lot of my personal and research experience has moved me towards mental health, and more recently working in anti-racism spaces. I think about myself as a mostly an urban indigenous person living in a settler center. I'm also a Hiphop Emcee who goes by the name MC GoodMedicine (because I believe that our words can be good medicine), and have been working with youth through Hiphop to decolonize our minds. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for the support of my family, kin, and partner, and as much as this is my story, they are the relational ties that make my narrative worthwhile.
