Keeta Gladue

Keeta Gladue is a self-proclaimed Indigenous nerd. Passionate about pop culture, humour and storytelling, Keeta examines how Disney tells stories with Indigenous characters. Through learning about ourselves in relation to such shared stories, we also learn more about each other. Her family is from both the Sucker Creek Cree Nation and the Métis Nation. Keeta grew up on a small island off of Vancouver Island called Tlay Maak Tsu, now known as Esperanza, in the traditional territory of the Ehattesaht people of the Nuu chah-nulth. As the Indigenous Student Program Advisor at the University of Calgary, Keeta is committed to supporting Indigenous student success, intercultural engagement and understanding.
