Crystal Smith

Crystal Smith is Tsimshian, Haisla and was adopted into the Heilsuk Nation. She now lives upon the Unceded Coast Salish Territory. As proud mother of two beautiful children, Crystal is taking it upon herself to fight for their future and writing poetry is one way she is able to battle. Crystal often writes about the lived oppression of Indigenous people and more importantly the will and skill to survive daily attempts of assimilation and colonialism.
