Bangin’ Bannock is an Indigenous women owned business that was founded through an Indigneous entrepreneur program called the 3C Challenge. Bangin’ Bannock’s core values are based on indigenizing business, which for us, includes creating community and giving back. One way we are able to give back is through donating 10% of our profits each month to a cause that is dear to our hearts. Our journey as entrepreneurs has been amazing. We’ve been able to bring an Indigenous item to market to expand the representation of Indigenous entrepreneurship through our product. One of the most amazing aspects of becoming an Indigenous women business is connecting to a community of strong Indigenous women that encourage and support each other's success.
Meet the Bangin’ Bannock Team
Hi, my name is Destiny. I am of mixed descent – my mother is Assiniboine from White Bear First Nation located in Saskatchewan and my father is mixed Caucasian. I was born in Revelstoke BC and was raised on and currently occupy the traditional territory of the Coast Salish peoples’ – Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish Nations. I have previously studied for my Bachelor of Social Work at Nicola Valley Institute of Technology - an Indigenous-based program. However, I've taken a step back from my studies to focus on motherhood. I am a mother of three loving children. Recently, I’ve been able to explore entrepreneurship as a way to make an income and stay at home with my children. Growing up in a household with 6 children, bannock was a delicious and affordable way to feed all of us children. Bannock continues to be a signature food in my family.
Hello, my name is Kelsey! I am also mixed descent, my mother is Irish and Scottish & my father is mixed Nakazdi dakelh, Cree, and possible European from his biological fathers side. I was born on Vancouver island and spent the first 5 years of my life living in a 1950s renovated school bus exploring all of British Columbia. After this I spent my young years growing up in the Fraser canyon (Boston bar) before returning to the island when I was 11. I currently reside in East Vancouver, although the island is still home. I have previously studied early childhood education, wanting to specialize in working with children with autism. I stopped studies to travel the world and never looked back- knowledge absolutely powers me. I was raised with bannock, my grandmothers taught my mother, and both her, my grandmothers, and my stepmother taught me, and now I’m excited to be able to teach others :)
Our understanding of the Origins of Bannock
Although indigenous peoples had variations of breads, Bannock is not a traditional food for Indigenous peoples. The word “bannock” May have come from the Scottish Gaelic “bannoch”, a versatile bread used by Scottish trappers. Historically, Indigenous peoples were nomadic hunters and gathers. Since contact with European settlers, Indigenous peoples were taken from their traditional ways of life and segregated onto reserve lands where they only had a limited supply of food ingredients. Indigenous peoples began making delicious bannock out of the minimal ingredients available to them, which continues to be a loved food in many Indigenous communities today.
