Mairi Anderson is currently completing her undergraduate degree in English at the University of Saskatchewan, with a focus on Indigenous writing. She is learning what it means to be a settler on this land, what decolonization looks like, and how she can be a better ally. Mairi grew up in Red Deer, Alberta, and has maintained strong ties there, returning for the summers between academic years. She has been active with Bus Riders of Saskatoon and the Socialist Students’ Association. She is inspired by expressions of community, time spent outside, poetry, and folksy art. She is keenly interested in working creatively with young people in a way that fosters respect for land, self, and other people, and will be applying to study Education in the future. She is striving to bike more, waste less, and eat her vegetables, and she knows there is always lots to learn.
