Jared Tait is a member of the Sachigo Lake First Nation in Treaty 9 and was raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario. He currently resides in Southern Ontario with his family in Peterborough.
In 2018, Jared began painting under the mentorship of his father, Tim Tait. Jared recalls his childhood being surrounded by his father's painting and being told the stories behind within them. Since his exposure to art at a young age, Jared has created a strong appreciation and connection to art. Through his understanding of the Woodland style and the methods of telling a story through his work, Jared captures the deep relations to the land and its creatures. He builds on the motivations to preserve these sacred stories, symbolism and teachings.
Jared creates imagery inspired by his personal and spiritual experiences and hopes to pass his teachings on to future generations.

We recognize the traditional and ancestral lands of the Haldimand Treaty on which we have the privilege of gathering. To the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Neutral First Nations, whose presence continues to enrich our communities both culturally and spiritually, thank you for your stewardship in helping us to foster an inclusive territory on which we live, work and play. May our presence today (and herein after) be one of unity and kinship, as we move forward in reconciling our history as a community and as a nation.
