Dr. Miquel Dangeli is a Tsimshian Nation member from Metlakatla, Alaska.
She is currently working in BC, Canada as a language revitalization teacher.Tsimshian territory crosses what eventually became the Canada-USA border in Alaska and British Columbia, but Mique’l is now facing deportation from Canada back to the United States because Canada does not recognize the Jay Treaty. The Jay Treaty recognizes First Nations ability to live, work, study and travel between both countries without any restrictions. The USA recognizes the Jay Treaty but Canada does not because the Treaty was signed between, at the time, the newly formed USA and Britain. Canada did not exist at that time.
