Pearl constantly strives to uplift Indigenous changemakers and their work. She uses the intuition and experience from her public health training to support Native leaders working to reclaim and rebuild their communities. Pearl feels excited when she can build connections with Indigenous leaders and help them shift their mindset to seventh generation thinking. She believes that healing, strategy, adaptability, and creativity are all good medicine that can create a path toward abundance. Pearl enjoys contributing to Native Governance Center’s systems change approach to strengthening Indigenous communities and embracing fun, unapologetically.
