My given name is Shanley Spence.
I also have a spirit name which is “Wapan Kisikawi Pisim Iskwew”
Meaning “Early Morning Sun Woman” or “Dawn Woman”.
I am Nihithaw from Mathias Colomb Cree Nation and
Anishinaabe from Lake St. Martin First Nation.

I am a multi-faceted, creative, artistic being ready to empower you
and create change in our world. When I’m not igniting my spirit
through hoop dance and fancy shawl, facilitating a powwow fit
workout, or practicing NLP Mindset coaching and hypnotherapy,
you can find me dedicating myself to community initiatives,
self-development, and other creative projects.

Now I’m here to share all this wisdom with you, be in service to
the greater collective and stay rooted within Indigneous ancestral
ways and practices.

Here’s what they are saying,

“I admire this woman so much. Shanley is a 25-year-old Swampy Cree and Anishinaabe hoop dancer, speaker, activist, ambassador and volunteer. To see her perform is absolutely a thing of beauty, but it’s when she speaks that she owns every room she is in. A runner-up in that year’s Miss Indian World, which she entered to inspire young girls, there is likely nothing Shanley can’t do or achieve. She’s the coolest.”

she is a beautiful young woman. I felt blessed to get to know her. Her powwow fit classes are really amazing. I felt like a new woman when I left. wanting to know more and getting in touch with who I am as an indigenous woman…but a blessing for all women. can’t wait for the next one.

Yes, we had the honour of meeting Shanley Spence in Thompson, MB during Indigenous Day 2018. Shanley is professional, knowledgeable and friendly – qualities needed to lead our Youth.

Shanley put on two performances at my work (IG Wealth Management) for National Indigenous Peoples Day. She is very talented, engaging, and charismatic. More than one person (including myself!) enjoyed it so much they attended both shows. Thank you for sharing your beautiful craft with us! It was a pleasure to attend.
