Grandmother Nancy Andry
Grandmother Nancy is of Algonquin and French heritage and has followed the Red Road since childhood. Seeking out elders willing to teach, her first two mentors were Lakota, one an author, one a medicine man. An Ojibwa medicine woman, then a Mi’kmaq grandmother later adopted her. Community elders gave her permission to pour lodges since 1991. She served as a facilitator for a Native Women’s Circle in federal prison for 17 years.
A Sundancer and a Sacred Pipe carrier, she is acknowledged as an elder and a grandmother in her communities in Canada, where she was given instruction to bring out and share certain teachings. Grandmother Nancy is a well-known storyteller, sharing legends from many different Nations in schools, health facilities and the pow wow circuit. She was a staff member of the Joined Nations of Connecticut, a youth organization for those of Native heritage. She has given talks in Calgary, Canada, St. Croix USV, and at various centers in New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. She also owned and operated an equestrian business until retirement, and now incorporates Horse Medicine in some of her lectures about Native culture.
I had such an amazing experience today at Muktinath with Grandmother Nancy. She placed a medicine wheel on the floor and a buffalo hide on top. Placed crystals around the wheel and me in the center. She called in spirits and ancestors. Such a fabulous experience and so safe with Grandmother!! I will be processing it for weeks. I hope you all go for a session. It was a once in a lifetime event and I am so grateful. You can schedule a healing through Sierra. -Peggy B. 2108
