Tribe Network is excited to welcome Alexa Metallic to our organization as an advisor. In this role, Alexa will support our efforts in engaging Indigenous peoples and amplifying the voices and work of Indigenous peoples and organizations.
Alexa Metallic is a Mi’gmaq woman from Gespe’gewa’gi, Mi’gma’gi. She holds her BA from St. Thomas University with a double major in Communications and Public Policy, and a double minor in Political Science and Gender Studies.
During her time at St. Thomas, Alexa sat as the Indigenous Student Representative, the Chair of the Indigenous Reconciliation Committee, and held a seat on the Senate Committee for Reconciliation. Additionally, she helped with the implementation of the “Indigenous Voices” column within the university’s newspaper.
Currently, Alexa attends the University of Victoria in pursuit of a Masters of Indigenous Governance and works in Community Engagement & Outreach for the Ulnooweg Education Centre, an Indigenous non-profit organization that works to create lasting foundational change for youth through the interplay of science, culture, education and digital skills.
“Alexa is not an emerging leader, she’s a leader today. We are lucky to have her give us strategic advice on how Tribe Network can genuinely engage and support Indigenous communities across (Turtle Island) Canada” said Alfred Burgesson
