Kendell Joiner (Méstaéhotóá’e) is an American-born, proud member of the Northern Cheyenne Nation located in Southeast Montana. Having grown up around his tribe and culture, the values of community, unity, and the common-good are centrepiece lessons that he carries in his current role as the Chief Executive Pathfinder of the Native Clan Organization. The Native Clan Organization is an Indigenous organization that takes a culturally centered approach of healing with our relatives returning back to their communities or starting new lives after contact with western justice systems.

Kendell stumbled across multiple undergraduate degrees in Criminal Justice, Corrections, and possesses a Master of Public Administration education that he utilizes to change systems and make our world a more balanced and empathetic one. Kendell serves on over a dozen boards, advisory councils, and community groups that work to make this “modern” world a more balanced one in a number of fields and for many causes. Kendell also founded the Ghost Bull Consultancy, a consulting partner that specializes in advising public and private sector organizations in achieving balance that comes from applying an Indigenous lens to today’s administrative and logistical operations.


Emmanuel Bach is an accomplished guitarist and composer from Brazil, currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Performance at the University of Manitoba. His musical journey includes collaborations with distinguished Brazilian artists such as Ivan Lins, Filó Machado, Flora Purim, and Airto Moreira. The ensemble is further enriched by the exceptional musicianship of Carter Graham on keyboards and Paul Balcain on saxophone. Their vocals weave together elements of samba, jazz, and Latin music to create a distinctive soundscape. The Samba Jazz Trio offers a harmonious blend of rhythms and melodies that never fail to captivate their audience.
