Angela was born in Churchill, Manitoba on December 27th, 1987. Her parents are Allan and Mary Code. Angela spent her childhood in her home Sayisi Dene reserve at Tadoule Lake, northern Manitoba. There, she was surrounded by the Chipewyan language, Dene culture, family and community of her people. At the age of ten, Angela and her family moved to Whitehorse, Yukon. Her parents chose Whitehorse as a new home to give their children better western educational and recreational opportunities; to expand their own careers and also to ensure the family maintained their northern identities. Since the move, Angela and her family return to their Sayisi Dene homeland as often as possible. Months following her graduation from high school in 2005, Angela began her post secondary education at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Following various family member deaths and sicknesses, Angela took time off school to work, to be with family (in Whitehorse and Tadoule), and also to travel throughout North and South America. Angela returned to UBC in 2010 and recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree – Major in First Nations Studies and a Minor in First Nations Languages and Linguistics. Angela’s future career goals include following in her parents footsteps in becoming a filmmaker. She is particularly interested in Indigenous language and cultural revitalization and also in developing programs and general support in building healthier and more sustainable communities.
