Kendra Weenie is an award winning author, keynote 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 through keynotes and workshops 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.

In 2020, Kendra created a bursary opportunity for single mothers in high school or university. Kendra was instrumental in the rise of Neechie Gear to global success. Although she has her own challenges as a single mother, she believes that true success comes from our ability to help others in need. Her goal is to help you move forward in a healthy way.
