Robin McLeod

Robin McLeod was raised on the land on the majestic and famous Misinipiy, Churchill River. Robin was raised on his father’s income as a trapper in the winter and a guide in the summer. Once these industries were no longer viable Robin’s family moved into the Lac La Ronge Indian Band community of Stanley Mission where a majority of their relatives reside. Growing up in a big, but a close knit family, Robin had to become familiar with the aspects of kinship in order to understand where each and every family member sits within his nucleus family. Robin lived in the community where he got his education from the local school. The Cree language was the only language used in the home of the McLeod’s and fluency was evident through out the cycle of Robin’s life in his community. In 2004 Robin graduated from the University of Regina where he received a four-year degree in Arts: Indigenous Studies. Robin has two boys, Kestin and Lindon; one girl, Rhonda; One granddaughter, Cathy and his wife’s name is Phyllis Charles. Robin strongly believes that strong healthy families built strong healthy communities and this knowledge is reflection of the kinship system used by the community.
