Kimberly Terrance is an Indigenous entrepreneur and community development advocate who works with diverse partners to advance the social and economic well-being of Indigenous communities world-wide. After immersing herself in an all-embracing cultural education while embarking on worldly travels to learn and interact with the many different cultures and Indigenous communities since the age of 18, Kimberly truly understands the winding path to individual and collective healing. Balancing the capitalistic and social realms of today’s society requires solution-oriented strategy and the ability to make a personal connection – she excels at both.
Born and raised in the Mohawk territory of Akwesasne, Kimberly’s leadership foundation is rooted in her traditional Haudenosaunee beliefs and experience as a business development specialist and dedicated volunteer. Mother of two and the daughter of a deaf mother, Kimberly strongly advocates for the Native American and international Deaf communities. Owning and operating several organizations, while directing the thoughtful growth of her family’s enterprise, has honed her ability to manage multiple complex issues while staying committed to personal balance. It is this entrepreneurial drive that led to the creation of Indigenous World™. Uniting people and creating access to cultural teachings that foster peace, pride, unity and connection is no small endeavor. Kimberly’s ability to develop solutions has helped grow this organization from a grassroots initiative into a robust social movement providing avenues for cultural, social, and economic support within Indigenous communities across North America.
Kimberly holds a BS in Business Administration from SUNY Potsdam and a professional business certificate from Columbia University.
She is an enrolled member of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe and a member of the Mohawks of Akwesasne.
