Tia Bankosky

Program Assistant

Tia is a settler Canadian born on the north shore of Lake Ontario in Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg and Haudenosaunee territory, also known as Ka’tarohkwi or Kingston, Ontario. She is a recent graduate of Trent University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Indigenous Environmental Studies and Sciences. Over the course of her undergraduate career through courses, volunteer work, and part-time work, she became involved in Indigenous, environmental, and social justice activism. Tia has become passionate about the intersectionality of our personal positionalities, the influence of cultural norms or expectations and how they influence our relationships with the environment and each other. She has begun to push herself to think of new ways to give back to these relations in respectful and beneficial ways. She believes that relationality and reciprocity are fundamental elements of equitable environmental justice and change-making work.
