Mallory Yawnghwe Founder & CEO

Indigenous Box is owned and operated by CEO Mallory Yawnghwe. Guided by great purpose, this formerly shy and nervous rez girl from the Saddle Lake Cree Nation #125 has accomplished things that she never believed possible.

Mallory, of the first generation in her family to not attend residential school, has earned her Bachelor of Commerce in Supply Chain Management, competed at the Young Entrepreneurs Symposium, attended the Coady Institute's Indigenous Women in Community Leadership program, as a student, as alumni, and now Facilitator/Mentor; She’s honed her Supply Chain Management skills building schools and hospitals for the Government of Alberta; shared her knowledge and community connections as a consultant for projects such as the Royal Alberta Museum’s Human History Exhibit and Fort Edmonton's Indigenous People’s Experience. Mallory is a candidate for the Supply Chain Management Canada professional designation.

Mallory has helped raise over a million dollars for the Circle of Abundance Fund in collaboration with a group of her mentors, peers, and celebrity Ryan Reynolds. Mallory is an in-demand speaker for organizations such as Indspire, CCAB, EY Canada, and the Indigenomics Institute, and has appeared on national television on shows such as CTV’s E-talk Daily, APTN’s The Bears’ Lair, and CBC’s The National. Now Mallory has taken on her biggest challenge yet: Indigenous Box Inc.

Kham Yawnghwe

Co-founder and CCO

A descendant of British, German, and Tai immigrants, Kham is a multi-disciplinary musician, writer, all-around creative guy, and now, inspired change-making entrepreneur. Spending the last 20 years writing, recording, performing, and promoting music as a song-writing drummer in bands and as a freelance side-musician, he’s learned a lot about creating products, getting them to market, connecting with customers, and gaining their loyalty. Being a side-musician is all about service and teamwork: serving up exactly what’s needed to elevate a song, and to support a band on and off stage. Being a songwriter, writing promo material for a band or artist, or creating convincing proposals is all about connecting with an audience through story-telling. These skills have served him well on his journey with Indigenous Box.

At Indigenous Box Kham works closely with Mallory to refine messaging, communicate it boldly and effectively, and to develop short and long term commercial strategies that keep Indigenous Box moving forward.
