Amanda Banning

Indigenous Coach

Amanda.Banning@durhamcollege.ca

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.
