The indigenous Business Students' Society is a group within the Edwards School of Business that works towards enriching the student experience.
Hi there! My name is Aubrey-Anne Laura Laliberte-Pewapisconias, but I usually go by Aubrey Pewap for simplicity. I am Cree and blessed to be from Treaty 10 Territory with Canoe Lake Cree First Nation and Treaty 6 Territory with Little Pine First Nation. I’m happy to be with this group for a third year. In the past, I was the First-Year Social Director on the EBSS and last year I was one of the Charity Directors of Events, so if you ever have any questions about our events or anything in general, feel free to talk to me in the halls! Around the Edwards School of Business you will also see me in other roles such as the founder of the Indigenous Business Students’ Society, a JDC West delegate on the Not-for-Profit team, or here as the Communications Director. I am looking forward to my third-year and beginning my major in finance (FUN-ance if you ask our Chairwoman, Sonia).

Anin, My name is Pamela Whitehead. I'm a proud Nakawe(Saulteaux) student from Yellow Quill First Nation, in Treaty 4 Territory. I'm a wife and mom, who loves to bead unique Indigenous jewelry, make ribbon dresses, floral beaded baby moccasin wraps, mossbags and receiving blankets when I have free time. I love traveling back home to visit family and participate in yearly cultural traditions and powwows. I'm in my second year of the Aboriginal Business Administration Certificate (ABAC) Program at Edwards School of Business. Last Year, I joined the Indigenous Business Student Society (IBSS) as a general member. I met so many beautiful people whom I take as my second family. This year, I decided to become more involved with IBSS; I'm the newly elected Logistics Headperson for IBSS. This year, I'm looking forward to meeting all Indigenous and Metis students currently studying in Edwards School of Business and different departments at the University Of Saskatchewan. I am also encouraging all Indigenous and Metis students to become part of our IBSS. Let's all have a fantastic 2019-2020 school year.

Pamela Jane Whitehead
I am the co-founder of the IBSS and currently in my third-year of studies majoring in Management. For the IBSS this year, I am the Headperson of Student Supports and more than excited to get things underway for the 2019/20 academic year. I grew up my whole life in Flying Dust First Nation in Northwest Saskatchewan and moved to Saskatoon two years ago to purse my Commerce degree. Aside from school, I am an active volunteer with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and have been volunteering with them for a little over a year now. In my free time I love to go fishing and play hockey.
