Tanisi, my name is Savannah Wells and I’m a queer woman of mixed Cree and German heritage. My home community is Montreal Lake Cree Nation and I was raised in Regina, Saskatchewan on Treaty 4 territory. I am a social worker who has primarily worked in the not-for-profit sector and I’ve spent the last year expanding my portfolio in more creative ways through consulting and podcasting.
I am a LEVEL Youth Policy Program alumni and wrote my policy ask called “tapwewin- The Truth” in 2019. Since writing my ask, I have moved to Treaty 7 territory and now call Calgary, Alberta home. I’ve continued working to advance my policy ask, and have begun participating in The Stride, which is an initiative of the Calgary Foundation. In my free time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and gardening.
