More About Denver
Denver Lynxleg is a proud yet displaced Saulteaux/Scottish member of Tootinaowaziibeeng (Valley River) Treaty 4 Reserve in Manitoba. She was born and raised as an uninvited guest on many of the unceded territories between Vancouver and the Okanagan. She has previous experience working with various initiatives across Canada, many of which explore arts, education and advocacy. While in Toronto, she worked for Canadian Roots Exchange and the Promoting Life Skills in Aboriginal Youth (PLAY) program, two initiatives that focused on decolonial and reconcilatory efforts between non-Indigenous and Indigenous communities through shared and lived experiences.
When she is not working at SFU, Denver supports Métis animator/filmmaker Amanda Strong at Spotted Fawn Productions as a Designer and Administrative Assistant. She is also a Core Member, Designer and Treasurer of the ReMatriate collective and campaign, a small volunteer led collective of young Indigenous womyn that give agency to youth, Elders, two-spirited, non-gender binary individuals and women to strengthen future generations through positive self-representation.
