Songbird, Miss Tia Wood (aka Q:olosoet) served as Youth Ambassador for, ‘Gathering of Nations,’ representing Saddle Lake Cree Nation (her Father’s community), Alberta AND the Stlatlimx/Xwexwenaqe Xwexwilmelh people (her Mother’s Community) of British Columbia. Tia also served as Miss Manitou Ahbee Festival’s Youth Ambassador honoring and bringing awareness to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and their families. Tia’s fusion of Indigenous traditional music with contemporary R&B flare, serves to tell the story of today’s diversity of Indigenous Women and Youth. Her message is to celebrate the resilient stories toward empowerment of all youth and girls. Her message, ‘Find your passion and honor it the way you honor life and ceremony…for life is ceremony,.. so sing your songs, dance your dances that celebrate you!’ By facilitating inner-power and connecting to your distinct gift, you serve the world your truest self. Be you unapologetically!
