Kendra Weenie is an award nominated author, inspirational speaker, and workshop facilitator from Sweetgrass First Nation. She is a CBC Future 40 Award recipient and has been featured locally and provincially on International Women's Day. Kendra came from humble beginnings, but through sport and culture she was able to further her confidence, work ethic and sense of identity. Kendra continues to share her story in hopes of encouraging others to heal and promotes self-care and healing through her workshops geared towards trauma survivors. She has co-founded two non-profits. Crystal’s Gift is based out of Saskatoon, SK and is a program designed to assist single mothers in need of gently used furniture items. IndigiFund is a non-profit aimed at empowering Indigenous youth in the areas of sport, education, and culture. In 2020, Kendra created a bursary opportunity for single mothers in high school or university. Although she has her own challenges as a single mother, she believes that true success comes from our ability to help others in need.

I recently had the opportunity to host Kendra at The Power of Unstoppable Women Saskatoon. Kendra was not only an excellent storyteller, she connected with the audience in countless ways. Her story of survival changed the lives of many women that day. For myself, being there to witness how much she inspired our audience was something truly remarkable.
