About Zainab

Zainab Amadahy is of mixed race background that includes African American, Cherokee, Seminole, Portuguese, Amish, Polynesian and other trace elements (if DNA testing is accurate). She is an author of screenplays, nonfiction and futurist fiction, the most notable being the adequately written yet somehow cult classic “Moons of Palmares”. Based in peri-apocalyptic Toronto, Zainab is the mother of 3 grown sons and a cat who allows her to sit on one section of the couch.

I’m available for professional development skills training, self empowerment workshops, speaking gigs and content writing for websites and community resources.

My background is in community service  in the areas of Indigenous knowledge reclamation, curanderismo, non-profit housing, women’s services, migrant settlement and community arts. I’ve also had training and work  experience in medical and photovoltaic technologies. Remarkably I am not confused in the least.

My work is about decolonizationself empowerment and social justice.  

Through my work, I strive to envision a world that values and nurtures our connectivity on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

My vision is one of healthy, sustainable communities that recognizes the interconnectedness and interdependence of all life; where individual wellbeing is understood to be crucial to that of the community, and community wellbeing is crucial to that of the individual; where relationships among communities contribute to globalized wellbeing.

I’ve had the honour of working with Elders, wisdom-keepers and healers from a variety of wisdom traditions and have been facilitating self-empowerment and skills training workshops for over two decades. I am professional and competent. Just don’t ask me to train cats.
