Kallie Wood and Chris McKee
Kallie Wood and Chris McKee of ConvergingPathways.ca, the You Rock Team™, and Chairs of the Atamiskākēwak National Gathering are excited to welcome all of our guests from all four directions around the globe. Kallie and Chris have an overwhelming ability to inspire human connection, reconciliation and hope to circles of people of all ages and diversities.
Converging Pathways is a needed prophetic voice that profoundly impacts people's worldview and is an effective catalyst for hope and healing in our nation. Kallie and Chris are dynamic and gifted professional presenters, making truth and reconciliation not only practical for everyone to pursue, but we have seen them ignite contagious hope and deep-level passion for a brighter future. It has been fascinating to watch! What sets Converging Pathways apart is how they embody raw truth, authentic healing, and unconditional reconciliatory love for people. In our pursuit to connect, equip and mobilize Canadian church communities to effectively care for vulnerable children and families, Forever Families of Canada is thrilled for what Converging Pathways accomplishes. They have become our secret sauce to greater Indigenous mindfulness in the faith sector and our go to in helping lead lasting change. The best is yet to come!
Kallie is Nakoda Cree from Cegakin (Carry The Kettle) First Nation and Chris is a born and raised Saskatchewan boy! Kallie is a 60’s scoop - foster care survivor and adoptee. Chris is also an adoptee – but with two very different journey’s from an Indigenous and non-Indigenous lens. Together, they ignite audiences and quicken hearts through story and connection from both an Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspective. Come and join in the narrative and walk alongside this dynamic team.
Throughout the week of the Atamiskākēwak National Gathering they will be presenting at the Faith Relations Day with the Blanket Exercise on Tuesday and Kallie will be sharing her journey at the SheLoves Reconciliation event on Wednesday evening (see schedule for details). Kallie and Chris will be out and about hosting throughout the week at all events, along with the amazing team of this National Gathering. PLEASE come up and say hi – introduce yourself and “shake hands with each other in greeting”, Atamiskākēwak! We cannot wait to gather and journey alongside one another for education, culture, building relationships and a whole lot of fun in our Friendly City of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on Treaty Four territory.website
