Shayla Oulette Stonechild | Canada | Indigenous Perspectives

Founder | Host @matriarch.movement | Advocate

Ambassador @lululemon | Meditation-Movement-Medicine

From Muscowpetung Saulteaux First Nation, Shayla Oulette Stonechild is a force for change, embodying her Mètis and Nehiyaw Iskwew heritage. An award recipient, she's a storyteller, yoga instructor, and founder of Matriarch Movement, dedicated to empowering Indigenous voices through wellness workshops. From hosting APTN's "Red Earth Uncovered" to leading ET Canada's 'Artists and Icons' Special, Shayla is amplifying Indigenous narratives on a global scale.

Her journey intertwines with artistry, advocacy, and wellness. Acting, dancing, and modeling since childhood, she found solace in yoga after her father's passing, later becoming an instructor. Graduating from the Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts, she blends trauma-informed yoga with Indigenous teachings, emphasizing holistic health.

Inspired by a dream, Shayla founded Matriarch Movement, advocating for Indigenous women's empowerment and representation in wellness spaces. Her workshops, addressing suicide prevention and addiction awareness, fuse breathwork, movement, and meditation.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Shayla cherishes moments at Kitsilano Beach and collaborations with brands like Lululemon and Paris Jewellers, supporting Matriarch Movement. Her tattoos symbolize transformation, while her music preferences, like "A Tribe Called Red," reflect her cultural roots.

Through documentaries like "Red Earth Uncovered" and TV movies like "Indian Road Trip," Shayla uncovers Indigenous mysteries and myths, reclaiming silenced voices. With advocacy and yoga as her guiding lights, she's igniting a resurgence of Indigenous perspectives, one workshop at a time!
