Amanda Banning

Indigenous Coach

Amanda Banning is an Anishinaabekwe (Ojibway woman) of the Bear Clan from Fort Williams First Nations. Amanda grew up with her family in Thunder Bay, Ontario which is just a bridge crossing away from her Indigenous community that her family has called home since, documented, as early as the 1850’s. She has spent nearly all of her life working on a wide range of reserves throughout Ontario, and working closely within many Indigenous communities.

Amanda hopes to use her perspective as a former student to support current students to the resources available through the First People Indigenous Centre - Suswaaning Endaajig. She is inspired by her Anishinaabe Grandfather who fought in WWII, whose resilience and compassion fuel her passion for supporting success and creating an inclusive community for all.
