Samaria Cardinal is a proud citizen of the Metis Nation Of Alberta. Her ancestry is Blackfoot and Norwegian/Scottish.
Here is a bit of her story and history.
She experienced extreme trauma when she was growing up which led to a life of mental health issues, addiction and homelessness. Along the way, she was misdiagnosed with an illness that led to 15 years of her life being lost and treatments that had long-lasting negative effects.
To heal herself, Samaria learned many different healing modalities and turned back to her Indigenous culture and traditions.
Although she will continue to heal until she takes her last breath on this Earth, she now focuses on living and giving back to her community.
She is currently a university social work student, board member for Metis Local 87, Indigenous peer mentor, patient advocate and owner of Mystical Metis.
Samaria provides hope for those who think that living a happy life is impossible. Samaria has made the impossible, possible.
Samaria does public speaking engagements on spirituality, motivation, overcoming, addiction, mental health and homelessness. If you would like to contact her about speaking, you can phone or email her.
