You might remember Cindy Crowe from season one. She was the last episode of the first season. As luck would have it, I had quite a thought-provoking conversation with Indigenous Elder, Lodgekeeper, Author and rural business woman Cindy Crowe. Cindy is a band member of the Opwaaganisiniing or the Red Rock Indian Band about an hour east of Thunder Bay, Ontario.

Cindy talks about upcoming municipal elections. Cindy owns businesses and she’s worked in many different sectors, including working with vulnerable populations. And she is vulnerable and authentic herself as she speaks about her own experience with houselessness.

As we approach Canada’s second National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, her words offer a great deal to think about.

Cindy Crowe, Elder, Lodgekeeper, Author, is a band member of the Opwaaganisiniing (Red Rock Indian Band) located an hour east of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Since 1994, Cindy has been bridging gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and communities. Cindy’s life purpose is to share a message of love and interconnectedness and she creates space for change in many different venues with people from all walks of life. She believes in leading by example. Personally, she is the grateful mom of five adult children and three grandchildren.

Since 2004, Cindy’s business, Cindy Crowe Consulting has represented an award winning Anishnaabe consulting firm with her expertise in community liaison, community engagement and community development.

Since 2005, Cindy has been the Executive Director for the Traditional Teaching Lodge operating as the Blue Sky Community Healing Centre that is an Indigenous, community-led organization based in Neebing, Ontario. Cindy respectfully acknowledges that sacred space as being within the traditional territory of the Fort William First Nation and loves to welcome people to the land of her ancestors next to the shores of Lake Superior.

Cindy’s seasonal tourism business Niibing Tribal Tours (Niibing is in the summer in Ojibwe) provides opportunities for her visitors to reconnect with Mother Earth while participating in the Anishnaabe culture through land based experiential learning. 

Cindy’s Identity and Purpose Coaching business is for clients looking to reclaim their roots, understand themselves better and identify their life purpose. Part of this coaching is delivered through Animal Spirit Guide workshops to better understand messaging from their guides.

Cindy is the author of Walking with Grey Wolf which honours her first vision and the Spiritual journey she has been on since then. She is currently writing her second book entitled All My Relations. 

Cindy has now started taking bookings for summer 2022 and into 2023 for wedding on her land, near Lake Superior. She can also perform the ceremony!
