Hi, my name is Tania. I am a member of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation. My nationality is Cree, dene Ukrainian. I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta in, Canada.
My dad is Ukrainian and is from the city of Edmonton. My mother is dene Cree, from Fort Chipewyan. I have just one sibling, and that is my brother.
I am a single mother of four children. Two girls and two boys. I am a baba to two grandchildren. My granddaughter is 13, and my grandson is 10.
Today I live in Fort Chipewyan, which is my mother’s hometown. I have been here in Fort chip for about 37 years and work at the Athabasca Delta Community School for helping hands. We promote mental health and well. We hold classes and do community events, all based on mental health, promoting, and sharing awareness.
I love Fort Chipewyan. This is my home. Today I have been sober for 12 years now, and I’m so grateful for my journey. It made me who I am today, and I love who I am.
Thank you for this opportunity, and I wish you all a beautiful journey. And may you find your identity. Because trust me, it does make a difference.
Smudge and Prayers! Marci.
