A Woman with a Mission


Bearwoman (Adele Arcand) is a Cree/Mohawk woman who ’s life purpose is working for Healing and Reconciliation of our First Nations people. She has worked for the past 25 years sharing her knowledge her teachings and her healing gifts with thousands of First Nations people across Canada. 

She served as Executive Director of Education for her community for ten years prior to starting Bearwoman & Associates in 1990.  Always driven by the desire to create and support positive change, Adele was instrumental in the delivery of a successful model of  edudaction recognized across the country.  The model was based on traditional teachings.

Honored by the experience, she has developed a unique spiritually guided method, to support traumatized clients heal and integrate past trauma. Bearwoman believes we must take our rightful place as Healers of our people's hearts and spirits and build our Nations Home fires.

I envision a Healthy First Nations where all members achieve their full potential and share prosperity. A place where the Home Fires radiate love and people live their Traditional Values.
