Anita Tenasco

Anita Tenasco is Anishinabe Algonquin from the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg (an Algonquin community located north of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada). Anita is an educator who firmly believes in First Nations control of First Nations education, in the urgent need to revitalize First Nations languages and in the value of play in and around schools.  Anita has served her community in a number of roles in education and in community services since 1994. As Anita is the child of a Residential School Survivor – she values engaging with non indigenous educators and schools so that a voice of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation is presented to mainstream educators.
