Tyler Tenniscoe

I am Anishinaabe from the community of Nezadiikaang or the Lac Des Mille Lacs First Nation. I was raised in Thunder Bay but spent a large amount of my childhood on my family's trapline near Quetico Provincial Park.

Some interesting things to know about me are that I am a powwow singer, dancer and regalia maker. I enjoy spending time out on the land as well as hunting, fishing, and trapping.

What sparked my interest in becoming a millwright apprentice was because I grew up spending much of my time working on various pieces of equipment and machinery, as well as framing, building and maintaining numerous structures for my family members. One other reason I decided to pursue this opportunity was my own personal experience on my family's trapline, we are very fortunate to be able to drink the water from the lakes and creeks from the area. This is an experience I hope to help other communities to work towards and attain with the skills and knowledge I hope to gain from working as a Millwright Apprentice.
