Megan is a member of the Heiltsuk Nation and lives in her hometown of Bella Bella, BC. Growing up she spent much of her time with family out on the ocean learning about her ancestral territory, Heiltsuk culture and traditions. Her dad is a Heiltsuk hereditary chief and has actively protected wild salmon, herring stocks and stood up against clearcut logging. Megan has just completed an Indigenous Tourism program through VIU. Her passion for protecting the lands and ocean emanates from her cultural roots and deep connection to this place which she calls home.
