Laax Lo’op Cynthia Jensen Fisk (Gitx’san), Board Chair

Laax Lo’op (Cynthia Jensen Fisk) is of the Fireweed clan, from house of Geel, in the village of Ansbayaxw. Believing that the language and the culture of the Gitx’san were “just sleeping,” she worked her entire life to re-awaken them. She started the Doreen Jensen Memorial Gitx’san Language Class in 2009 in memory of her mother, Doreen Jensen. She feels honoured to carry on the traditions of her ancestors and follow in her mother’s footsteps of paving the way to ensuring that "our language and culture never die." In addition to being a fluent speaker and teacher, Ms. Fisk is an accomplished practitioner of traditional art. She became Board Chair in 2018.
