Michelle Fournie

Founder

Sacred Four Communications

Meet Michelle:

Michelle Fournie (she/her/hers) is a Citizen belonging to and claimed by Lii Michif (The Métis) Nation of Alberta. She and her partner of 20 years raise their children in Chestermere respecting the Territory of the Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot Confederacy), Treaty #7, and Otipemisiwak (“those that rule themselves”) within Rocky View District 4 and as part of the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. 

Michelle is a mother, wife, sister, auntie, cousin, and friend actively reclaiming these roles through cultural support and Elders’ guidance. Michelle is an avid thrift shopper, cake connoisseur, and aspiring beadwork artist. She remains accountable to a strong circle of mentors, Indigenous youth, and her Community throughout her Reconciliatory practice.

Named Calgary’s Top 40 Under 40, Michelle weaves humour, poetry, and Indigenous scholarship into her decolonization methodology. Reciprocal service opportunities have included Co-Chair of the City of Calgary’s Indigenous Urban Affairs Committee, Co-Chair for the Government of Alberta’s Metis Women’s Economic Council, and most recently as Co-Chair of the Indigenous Gathering Place Society of Calgary and Manager of the Iniikokaan (Buffalo Lodge) Centre at Bow Valley College supporting Indigenous student success as they define it. She is also the founder of Sacred Four Communications—an anti-colonial trauma-informed collaborative practice rooted in collaboration, Respect, Reciprocity, Reverence, Relevance, and Responsibility.
