CEO, Raven Institute & Iskwew Air
Teara launched her aviation career as a commercial pilot. Becoming a pilot was transformational, truly giving this young Indigenous woman wings – she loves to see others fall in love with flight.
As the visionary of the Raven Institute, she sees connected hearts, minds, and hands in a united and thriving nation. Teara holds a Master of Arts in Leadership degree from Royal Roads University, and she is a Certified Executive Coach. The journey of learning now takes her back to Royal Roads as Associate Faculty and to Fielding University where she is studying in the Human Development Ph.D. program. Teara is the first Indigenous woman to launch an airline in Canada. Teara is a proud Métis bridge builder.
