Yasmin is appointed by the McLeod Lake Indian Band as Director of the McLeod Lake Mackenzie Community Forest Corporation.
Danache’a, I am Yasmin Prince.
I was adopted as a baby and grew up on Vancouver Island. I made connection with McLeod Lake Indian Band in 1998 and reconnected with my family and community.
I have always had the energy for working with youth and more recently with Aboriginal Child welfare on the Island. Currently I am a Family Advocate and Facilitator for South Island Wellness Society on Tsawout Territory.
I have been part of the McLeod Lake Board of Trustees from 2003-2006 and part of Chief and Council from 2008-2016. I have pride in who I am and where I come from. This includes the responsibility I have as a band member and a steward of our lands.
