Bemidji, MN — Jaime Arsenault has a gift for the challenging work of repatriation, reconciliation and healing. She believes that painful past experiences can be important teachers. In her work with Indigenous nations on repatriation of sacred items, preservation of the environment and reconciliation related to boarding schools, she sees the possibility for writing a new chapter of community wellness. She wants to engage people in conversations to develop actionable plans that promote individual and communal well-being. She will prepare to lead this change by seeking moments of reflection while also talking with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals whose communities have taken bold and imaginative action toward repatriation and reconciliation.
