My name is Kendra Marks and I am a guest living in sxʷeŋxʷəŋ təŋəxʷ on unceded Lkwungen territory. I have Irish, Québécois, Scandinavian, Welsh, Swiss, Greek, and Anishinaabe heritage. 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 try to be as close to the ocean as possible.
