Hi, my name is Grace Tait. I was born in Prince Rupert BC of the Tsimshian Nation, under my fathers family of Lax Kw’alaams BC. Our family moved to Vancouver, specifically in the DTES Vancouver, over 40 years ago. I am the mother of two wonderful adult children and raised my family in East Van. Now I am the proud nana to two beautiful grand-children also. I come from a hereditary Chiefs family from Kitkatla BC, on my mother’s side. My mom’s family history and lineage goes back thousands of years. I was raised to be very proud of where I come from and many Elder’s in my family, helped to raise me.
