Tessa Wolf Leg
Tessa Wolf Leg is twenty-one years old and from the Siksika First Nation. She is currently in her third year of International Indigenous Studies with a minor in Psychology at the University of Calgary. For the past two summers, she has worked with the Barrier Lake Biogeoscience Institute to create land-based learning initiatives for youth to get back in touch with the land. Two years prior, she created Sacred Beginnings, a program that helped urban Indigenous youth learn plant knowledge. She has always been engaged in her culture since she was a child, which has helped her in her studies and work. Her love for the outdoors has inspired her to look more into the land around her. She spends most of her free time fishing and discovering new plants and exploring their uses. She is always willing to share any of her knowledge she has gained through the years.
