Chelsea Bannatyne

Chelsea BannatyneHello, Boozhoo! 

My name is Chelsea Bannatyne. I use she/her pronouns. I identify as Afro-Indigenous, I am of Ojibwe and Bajan (Barbados) descent. I was born and raised in the core of Winnipeg. I am also a mother to two beautiful children.

I graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a 4-Year BA in Human Rights and Urban & Inner-City Studies in 2022. My research interests have largely been informed by my own lived experience – I spent the majority of my undergrad studying Indigenous socio-economic and health disparities in Canada. I ultimately want to serve and give back to my Indigenous community, through human rights literacy, food security and holistic healing.  I am also open to relocating and carrying on serving unprivileged communities.

During my free time I like to read, hang out with my family and friends, and during the summer months I like to be outdoors either doing hikes or have a family day at the beach and I love travelling and trying out different cuisines.
