About Sandi Boucher

Navigating Canadian Reconciliation

Offering a perspective so often denied non-Indigenous Canadians, Sandi Boucher, the owner of Reconciliation Works Canada, uses Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) teachings, metaphors, stories, cartoons, her infectious humour, and her undeniable wisdom to build understanding of and respect for the Indigenous peoples she calls family, friends, and colleagues.

A proud member of Seine River First Nation in Treaty #3 territory in northern Ontario, Sandi is internally recognized as an engaging speaker, a traditional knowledge keeper, and a best-selling author.  She began her speaking career in 2009 with the launch of her first book “Honorary Indian”.  Four books later, Sandi and her team are now laser-focused on healing both sides of the eagle feather she so often refers to.

Audiences for Sandi’s Lunch and Learn sessions (one hour), half day workshops and/or full day seminars include First Nation communities, corporations, small to medium size businesses, municipalities, hospitals, school boards, universities, colleges, and participants at countless conferences and seminars.
