Victoria Grant continues her support of Anishnawbe Health as a Circle of Landscape Cultivator
We recently caught up with Victoria Grant, Loon Clan, member of the Temagami First Nation, as she and her son Michael attended the COVID-19 drop-in vaccination clinic at our Gerrard Street location. Victoria and her family have been long-time supporters of Anishnawbe Health. Over the last few years she has been involved in supporting the Foundation through various activities. In 2018, Victoria was a Circle of Volunteers at Verity Club that raised $75,000 with a dinner featuring Senator Murray Sinclair and in 2019 she supported her good friend Dr. Gretchen Roedde with the launch of her book “Deep Water Dream”; which doubled as a fundraiser for Anishnawbe Health.
When the pandemic hit, Victoria donated a computer to a health centre client so that they could access online services provided by AHT staff. Today, Victoria continues her support of Anishnawbe health through her role as a Circle of Landscape Cultivator, supporting a central part of the campaign project to build a new home for Anishnawbe Health, a First Peoples’ Landscape that will celebrate the beauty and power of nature and offer a space for all community members to connect to land and medicine, and participate in ceremony.
When asked why she supports the Indigenous Peoples’ Landscape, Victoria says, “We have good people supporting this project. It is really important as Indigenous Peoples that we support the garden and make it our own.”
