Brandon Redford

Student Life and Wellbeing Coordinator

Brandon is from the Driftpile Cree Nation in Northern Alberta and from a young age became passionate about creating a healthier life for himself and his community, this continues to be the way he approaches decolonization. Education and learning were the tools he used to attain a more self-determined life. As he progressed through his Health Science degree at UBCO he deepened his understanding of health and has come to the realization that his passion is helping other Indigenous people create more self-determined lives through education and learning.

He is an admirer of the work that FNTC has done and is forecasted to do. He is ecstatic to help co-create the student and alumni experience all in hopes to realize one of the main desires for Indigenous people in Canada- to live well and to have the knowledge, resources, freedom to define what that means in ones own worldview without the consequence of racial, legal or otherwise detrimental consequences. He strongly believes that through his time at FNTC he can have this level of impact.

Through his lived and professional experience, he brings forward an abundance of empathy, mindfulness, and trauma-informed care to his work supporting our students in their academic journeys. He has a keen interest and experience in alumni engagement and events management and is extremely excited to make an impact on the Technology Council’s growth in 2021 and beyond.
