Presenter bio: Keeta Gladue is a proud professional Indigenous nerd (IndigENerd), who believes in changing the world through pop culture references, humour and storytelling.

She is the current Indigenous Student Program Advisor at Writing Symbols Lodge (The University of Calgary’s Indigenous student support centre) supporting diversity, equity and inclusion.
