Isabel is First Nations from the Cree Nation. She was born in Saskatchewan and grew up in Alberta. She is 45 years old and is very independent, taking care of her own health and well-being. She said that it was horrible and embarrassing to find herself homeless. It occurred 8 months ago and came after she had gone on an 8 month long Awareness Campaign across the country to the east coast to raise awareness of violence in the aboriginal community. Before she left on this trip, she made a living in downtown Victoria reading Taro cards. However when she returned, her patron base was so reduced that she was unable to make a living.
She has completed a course in business and feels confident that she will be able to set up an office with other aboriginal practitioners and again have financial security. She would be happy for anyone to pray for this goal with her.
