Sara Loutitt - Instructor for Community-Based Environmental Monitoring Program

Sara Louitt

Born in the far north of Saskatchewan, Sara Loutitt’s Métis roots were planted in the remote fly-in community of Uranium City on the rocky shorelines of Lake Athabasca. Sara’s free spirit continues to be nurtured by the wind, sunshine, rain, and snow, but the land is where her soul knows peace and contentment. Sara currently lives in Fort McMurray (Nistawoyou in Cree) and it continually feeds and nourishes her being, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually. 

Sara completed her Masters in Education in 2018. Her life work in education has taken a more focused role on Indigenous languages, ways of knowing, and traditional land use within the existing educational frameworks. Sara has a passion to motivate and inspire the young and old, human and non-human beings, to reconnect with the land, and revitalize the relationship we have with all of creation. Sara’s current role as the Indigenous instructor for the Community-Based Environmental Monitoring Program allows her to teach students about the Indigenous ways of knowing and connecting with the land. Her daily motto is: Mîyo-pimâtisiwin, nitataminan (Its a beautiful life, I am grateful).
