Sandi Boucher has dedicated her life to assisting Indigenous people to heal, empowering them as they decolonize and find their way to and through reconciliation, IF that is where they want to go.
Whether it is through her seminars, her books, her blog posts or her social media presence, Sandi is an internationally recognized and much-loved speaker, thought leader, television host, seminar facilitator and best-selling author who brings a much needed “Indigenous lens” to the Canadian conversation. A proud member of Seine River First Nation in northern Ontario, Canada, Sandi has made Thunder Bay, Ontario her home for more than 25 years, a city nationally recognized for its anti-Indigenous racism. Yet she was named both the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year and the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund Business Woman of the Year in 2016, proving that she knows how to build bridges even in the most challenging of situations.
Known for her passionate and empowering speaking style that speaks “to hearts, not minds”, Sandi brings wisdom, humour, traditional knowledge and encouragement into any room she enters. Sandi’s audiences include elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools; colleges and universities; First Nation communities and agencies; mainstream municipalities and businesses, along with countless national, international, and regional conferences.
