This is my Story!

Speaker: Diane Campeau

Diane Campeau is the Housing Director with Regina Youth For Christ.

Diane is of the Saulteaux, Cree and Métis Nations of Saskatchewan. She is the proud mother to her 10 year old daughter, Kenadee. Both Diane and Kenadee received their Indigenous name from Ojibwe Elder Hector Copegog. Diane’s Indigenous name is Ji-gaa-bii-kwe, which means, Where the Land and Water meets woman. Kenadee’s Indigenous name is N’baaghiizo, which means, The Moon Crossing the Night Sky while I am Sleeping.

Diane is a survivor of the 60’s scoop, where thousands of Indigenous children were taken from their family of origin and placed in foster care and/or adopted out. As a result, Diane’s journey has taken her from Saskatchewan to Nova Scotia, to New Brunswick, to Ontario, and to Thailand.

Diane convocated from the University of Regina in 2003 with a Bachelor of Social Work and is currently a Registered Social Worker with the Province of Saskatchewan. Diane has over fifteen years of Child Welfare experience, both here in Saskatchewan and in Ontario.

Diane came to faith on October 19, 2014, where her journey began in ministry work with Regina Youth For Christ. Around this time, Diane began to seek out an understanding of what it is like to be Indigenous and Christian.
