Jaqueline Anaquod has made giving back to her Indigenous community a lifelong goal. Through her research at the University of Victoria, she is demonstrating the positive impacts of language on Indigenous health. She started working with researcher Carrie Bourassa in the CFI-funded Indigenous Community-Based Health Research Lab during her undergraduate studies at the First Nations University of Canada. Since then, Bourassa has been a tremendous source of inspiration, encouraging her to further her education. Today, she works out of the same lab in downtown Regina, Sask., where she is surrounded by elders and friends who help guide her on her journey.
