Biography

Pamela is a proud Métis from the Red River Settlement, where her ancestors took Métis scrip. She has worked throughout the country in a wide variety of communication and engagement capacities. In addition to working for the Royal Alberta Museum, Pamela assisted in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights' consultation with First Nations across Turtle Island. She traveled nationwide with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, gathering testimony from both survivors and intergenerational survivors of the residential “school” system. She also worked with the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, once again gathering testimony from survivors and the families. In 2016, she joined Aboriginal Peoples Television Network, finding her place in the communications department. 

Pamela graduated from the Creative Communications program at Red River College, majoring in Media Production and creating several award-winning documentaries and short films along the way. Pamela spends most of her time on the land—swimming, hiking, skating, kayaking and snowshoeing.
