Vandee Crane is the author of My Body, My Soul: One Woman's Journey to Reclaim Both, as well as Founder and Director of Rise In Love Foundation, a grassroots nonprofit, whose mission is to support individuals, families, communities and companies in understanding and healing the individual and collective Mother Wound by bringing Women of all Nations together to heal through connection, culture and conversation. A process known in Indigenous Cultures around the World as ReMatriation.
Vandee, formerly Pavandeep Kaur Khalsa initially came to learn about KY/3HO in 2009 through a series of serendipitous spiritual experiences, after an early life of child trafficking and addiction. She’s here today to offer her unique perspective and share her own experiences in the community as an Indigenous Woman, a Survivor Leader, and Professional Disruptor.
Vandee lives in Northern New Mexico, on Ancestral Apache and Pueblo Territory. She herself is of Wazhazhe, Tsalagi, and European American descent. Her partner John SwiftBird and their Daughter TatankaSkaWin "Tata" SwiftBird are enrolled members of the Oglala Lakota Nation. She and her Family are passionate about Cultural Preservation and keeping their Traditional Values alive through their grassroots nonprofit work.
Vandee and their Daughter are also featured in the up and coming documentary Women of the White Buffalo, to be released in 7 languages internationally this coming month. Vandee's professional and academic background include addictions counseling, trauma informed care, and Integrative studies. She is also an outspoken CSET (child trafficking Survivor Leader) who has brought a lot of awareness and impactful change to the communities and cases she has been involved with.
