Regena has offered a lifetime of public service to her community. Born in Cardston, Alberta, Regena graduated from high school and went on to study at the Henderson Business College for Business Management.
She was taught by Elders and Chiefs, regarding identity as Indigenous peoples, inherent rights, Treaty and Treaty rights. She took several courses in public speaking, life skills and self development.
“My life’s work has been protecting our Treaty, Treaty rights and inherent rights locally, nationally, and internationally.
As an employee, and elected into leadership, I have had the opportunity to witness and participate in the socio-economic growth of our Nation.
“My goal has always been to help our people have a safe, prosperous, and healthy environment; and to have our Treaty implemented according to its spirit and intent. I am proud to be a citizen of Tsuut’ina Nation.”
