Theresa Elizabeth Sault-Brill has a vast background due to traditional elder’s coming to her for various needs, concerns and issues over the span of her adult life. She did not seek to make careers in the criminal justice field or psychology fields. As a spiritual and cultural woman, she has learned that our solutions are in our culture. She only sought to gain the education, training, and experiences to obtain understandings in all aspects that impact her people and other Indigenous peoples. Through this she has been able to truly help in education, empowerment, and healings. Through her life experiences, educations, and trainings Theresa believes that we can show how our ways of learning, counseling, etc. is the most effective, and as Traditional Sovereign People we can prove and justify our cultural ways to implement our real and needed solutions.
