Kanahus (Secwepemc/Ktunuxa)is a Traditional Birth Keeper and a mother of 4 children each born in a traditional ceremony. She has always aspired to live a traditional life off the land and amongst her people.

Kanahus needs to meet with other traditional midwives at the YonyFest, near Montreal, Mohawk territoy. She needs travel money to get her from Secwepemc territory (Chase BC) to Montreal. 

Her challenge is to seek out and research ancient knowledge about birthing among the remnants of traditional teachings that are almost forgotten. It exists in pockets throughout Indigenous culture, it is struggle to capture the information and to turn it into useable knowledge for the people. Her focus is birthing as it is her belief that children are imprinted from the beginning of their existing. She is interested in offering parents an opportunity to bring their children into the world in a natural harmonious way that connects them to their Indigenous culture that will inspire the child’s life in a positive direction.
