Here, are the speakers' bio, 

Bio - Jess Barton 

Jess is a community organizer, Iye Creative co-founder, and entrepreneur born in BC, Canada. For the past 7 years, Jess has been involved in various anthropological and archaeological research projects that favour long-term and respectful relationship building with First Nation communities.  

As a community builder, she loves connecting with knowledge keepers and creating alternatives based on global ancestral practices to solve local, and modern unbalances. 

Aside from Iye Creative, she works at the Indigenous Mentorship Network of the Pacific Northwest (IMN-PN) as a Network Coordinator. 


Bio - Ariel Reyes Antuan 

Ariel is a community connector, Iye Creative co-founder, and entrepreneur born in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba. Ariel for the past 10 years has been involved in coordinating at the highest level, optimizing, and managing various community projects and grassroots initiatives that favour long-term, reciprocal and respectful relationship building for communities in Cuba and what’s currently Canada. 

As an Afrocuban in the diaspora, Ariel has worked in culturally diverse environments, cities, and countries developing initiatives. He deeply understands community issues and how important it is to develop holistic and strategic community-based partnerships in order to plan around the needs of disenfranchised groups to provide them with tools that empower their own liberation.
