Tess Patricia Jean Morgan is 25 years of age, Secwepemc and Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation heritage.
She has worked with an Aboriginal Womens’ shelter called Mamas Wall Street Studio to help fund raise by sewing. She was contracted to make several shawls with a native designed circular decal on the back representing the class’ graduation. She has also worked with Internationally known Haida Fashion Designer, Dorothy Grant where she assisted with her fashion line and modeled in fashion shows.
She travelled to Peru in highschool and performed for the indigenous children by dancing her interior Salish traditional fancy dance in which the teacher gratefully praised her for giving them confidence to want to be involved in their culture. She was chosen as a dancer across B.C to dance at the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Para-Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC along with 200 other First Nations youth. The past few years she has worked in the tourism industry in Vancouver with the Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC projects, for example 2010 Winter Olympic and Para-Olympic Games in Vancouver as a host at the FourHost First Nations pavilion and as an actor and host for the Klahowya Village venue in Stanley Park.
