Tasha Spillett-Sumner

Tasha Spillett-Sumner draws her strength from both her Nehiyaw and Trinidadian bloodlines. She is a new mother, celebrated educator, author, poet and emerging scholar, but is most heart-tied to contributing to community-led work that centres land and water defence, and the protection of Indigenous women and girls. Tasha is a PhD candidate at the University of Saskatchewan, where she holds a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. In her work as a doctoral student, she is weaving together her cultural identity and commitment to community to produce a body of research that amplifies Indigenous women’s demands for justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People, and serves as a continuation of the resistance against the assault of colonialism.
