You have reached the website of Loretta Iris. I am here having integrated over 50 years of education, training and experience that deeply connects me to my vocation of supporting life for all beings.
As a young child playing on the banks of the Assiniboine River, I watched birds landing , and bugs interacting while clouds, wind and sun were shaping shadows in front of me. The scent of willow branches in spring, taste of wild berries in summer and crisp crystal snowflakes in winter rooted a keen sense of awareness about the inter-connectedness of all things. Gifts of play, connection, and a sense of determination reflected the space and beauty of my world of nature. My life is spent honoring and co-creating the flow of universal gifts in harmony with the web of life.
Loretta acknowledges that she is on Treaty 6 Territory – the Homeland of the Métis, Cree, Dakota, Lakota and many indigenous nations who held original occupation . She respects and mourns the losses that result from domination culture . She acknowledges the efforts of First Nations and Métis ancestors of this place and the work to maintain relationship with all.
* Assiniboine (known to its own speakers as Nakota or Nakoda) is a Siouan language of the Northern Plains (http://www.native-languages.org/assiniboine.htm)
