Mallory Yawnghwe, is a nehiyaw iskwew from the Saddle Lake Cree Nation in North Eastern Alberta. She is a recent graduate of MacEwan University School of Business’s Bachelor of Commerce in Supply Chain Management, and is three years into her career as a Project Procurement Specialist with Alberta Infrastructure.

Mallory thrives on challenge and is driven to overcome her fear of the unknown to make a difference in this world. Sometimes accused of being overly optimistic, Mallory has used her positive attitude, humility, perseverance, to grow into a respected Supply Chain professional, independent business and community consultant, and educational facilitator. Her commitment to professionalism, ethics, and high standards in her work have already made her a stand-out in her field. Most recently, she has taken a big leap into the role of President and CEO of her new start up Indigenous Box Inc.

With Indigenous Box, Mallory's goal has always been to create an exciting and personal experience for her customers. Created with her customers in mind, each box is for Indigenous people to see themselves in, but also from Indigenous people for anyone to enjoy. Above all she wants Indigenous women like her to feel that they are having a VIP experience when they open their own Indigenous Box.
