Kristin Enns-Kavanagh was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She received a B.A. (Honours) in Anthropology, Archaeology and Women’s and Gender Studies from the University of Saskatchewan in 1997, and an M.A. in Anthropology and Archaeology from the U. of. S. in 2002. Her early career as a field archaeologist gifted her with a deep-rooted sense of connection to Saskatchewan's varied landscape. It also gave her the chance to study a wide range of the province’s history through archival research, oral history, and archaeological survey. Her career has since evolved to include community engagement, facilitation for community-based visioning, and non-profit governance, complemented by volunteer roles in the non-profit heritage and culture sectors. Kristin is a strong advocate for community-driven processes to share and explore the past and what it means for contemporary people.
