Alisha Danielson is a 19 year old Kehewin advocate from Edmonton, Alberta. Alisha works a full time job at Ekati Diamond Mine in the Northwest Territories where she spends most of her time. She grew up in the beautiful province of British Columbia, until she was 16 and moved to the Wildrose province of Alberta. Alisha enjoys reading, art, and weight lifting when she isn’t advocating. Alisha advocates for Indigenous Housing and Shelter, as she believes the lack of housing and shelters available for Indigenous is low and needs change. With her advocacy she has been able to start fundraisers for existing shelters and homes for Indigenous peoples/women across Alberta where she soon wants to reach all over Canada. Alisha’s platform “ Whispers Between The Braids “ is where she shares her information/fundraising/advocacy on the ongoing housing/shelter crisis along with her personal Instagram.
