Tsatia is a Cree-Metis woman who grew up in Northern British Columbia on unceded Wet’suwet’en territories.
Tsatia has a BA in Communications and First Nations Studies from Simon Fraser University, an MA in Indigenous Governance from the University of Victoria, and just completed her second MA at the University of Northern British Columbia in Interdisciplinary Studies (Geography, Political Science, and Gender Studies).
Both of her graduate degrees have focussed on the roles of Indigenous women’s storytelling in respatializing and reclaiming urban landscapes from settler colonial narratives and erasures.
Maggie is an Academic Advisor for Aboriginal students in the Faculty of Arts. She holds an MA in History from UBC, and previously attended SFU, Concordia and Capilano University.
Her first office job was conducting research for In-SHUCK-ch/N’quatqua Treaty Group and she has worked with Indigenous artists and communities on exhibits at the UBC Museum of Anthropology and other Lower Mainland museums. She joined Arts Advising in 2016 and is available to help with questions about academic planning and graduation.
ASA has one or two student peers that work with the team over the Summer or Winter Sessions. You might receive emails from them reminding you of important dates, events or opportunities over the academic cycle. The ASA Student Peer also coordinates the Indigenous Leadership Collective.
You’re welcome to contact them if you have questions about Indigenous student life such as places to study, great places to eat on campus, and anything else that you might be curious about.
