LEXI FISHER

REGISTERED MASTER SOCIAL WORKER

Kisuk kyukuit, hu qaklik Alexis Fisher – Greetings, my name is Alexis Fisher, but most people know me as Lexi. My mother is from the Ktunaxa Nation and my father from Kaska Nation. I was born and raised on the Aqam Reservation just outside what is now known as Cranbrook, BC, which is on the traditional, ancestral, and unceeded lands of the Ktunaxa Peoples. I now live and work as an uninvited guest on the stolen lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh).

I am a Registered Social Worker with a Master’s in Social Work from the University of British Columbia and approximately a decade working in the field. My most recent experience includes providing Indigenous based trauma-informed counselling, as well as facilitating therapy groups in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Motherhood and Fatherhood is Sacred, Strengthening Families Together, and others.

Having been raised with my traditional Ktunaxa culture, I am grateful for my opportunities to learn our language, sing and drum our songs, and learn other practices, such as fancy shawl and jingle dress dancing. With this, I have dedicated myself to combining who I am as a Ktunaxa/Kaska woman with my western education to provide Indigenous based, culturally safe, and accessible mental health care.

Taxas – Thank you
