Guest JUDGE

Teara Fraser

Teara is a proud Métis entrepreneur and the first Indigenous woman in Canada to start her own airline, Iskwew (iss-kway-yo) Air. She chose the Cree word for woman, Iskwew as act of reclamation…a reclamation of womanhood in a very male-dominated industry, reclamation of matriarchal leadership and reclamation of language. She’s well know for her message that ‘creating conditions for Indigenous entrepreneurs to thrive is the single most natural, fast and effective pathway to economic reconciliation in our country’ and soon she’ll be known for being featured in DC comics as a Wonder Women of History!
