My name is Kendra Marks and I am a guest living in sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ on unceded Lkwungen territory. I have Irish, Québécois, Métis, Anishinaabe, Scandinavian, French, Welsh, Swiss, Greek, and Scottish heritage. My family is from North Bay and Montréal. I grew up on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Niitsitapi, Siksika, Kainai and Piikani), the Tsuut’ina Nation, the Nakoda Nations (Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley), and the Métis Nation of Alberta. I’m currently learning how to be a lawyer. I spend a lot of time writing and I try to spend as much time as I can with the ocean.
