Cheryl Whiskeyjack - Edmonton
Diploma, Child and Youth Care (Grant McEwan University)

Cheryl Whiskeyjack is the leading proponent of Kahkiyaw, a new outcomes-based service delivery model provided through the Bent Arrow Healing Society in Edmonton. In Kahkiyaw, youth and families don’t passively receive support but are instead active parts of wellness “teams.” This shakeup to the norm has put Whiskeyjack in the spotlight, both for criticism but also celebration, having recently been invited to speak at Harvard about her efforts.
