About our Program Leaders:

Darla Rasmussen: 

Red Elk Singing Woman from Siksika Nation, also known as Darla Rasmussen (Blackkettle), is a mother of two boys, an entrepreneur, and a lifelong student in self-discovery, healing and growth. 

Her life experiences are what strengthened her heart, mind, body and spirit to love, encourage and support others enduring similar life sufferings and transitions. 

Her work experience has offered her a wealth of knowledge and opportunity to advance and grow over her 20 years of supporting Indigenous youth, women, men, families and communities. In 2011 in-stead of taking her life, she mentored under an Elder who grounded her in ceremony, cultural teachings and practices that enriched her life and encouraged her to be who she is today. 

With the influence of her Indigenous roots she offers “Sacred Spaces” to a variety of organizations, agencies and community members by bringing them together around the big drum to share cultural teachings in a sacred way. 

You will find Darla charming, graceful and genuine to work with, she will come to you with an open mind, empathic heart and willingness to give and receive love, knowledge and laughter.
