Paula Tait

Hadi, si suzi, Paula Tait, si ne’h Betty Tait, Tsayu, si ba’p, Phillip Tait, Laksilyu.  I am proud mother of two children, my daughter Taleetha and my son Rahim.  I have 2 brothers and 3 sisters. I was born and raised in Witset and moved to Vancouver as a youth. While living in Vancouver, I attended the Native Education College, Langara College and then received a Bachelor of Arts Degree, majoring in Canadian Studies. After my university studies, I worked with multiple Indigenous organizations, in the areas of Treaty Negotiation, Education, Employment, Early Childhood Development, HIV/AIDS and now Social Services Sector.  I am passionate in providing culture, advocating and working for Indigenous people, now I am working for my nation, it’s more meaningful  for me, as I am part of a team that is helping reinstate our cultural ways and language. Being Wet’suwet’en means with my ancestor’s hard work and sacrifice,  I am here, my children are here and my unborn grandchildren will  be coming to my family, to my nation. 

Tabi misih,

Paula Tait
