About Larissa

Larissa Crawford proudly passes on Métis and Jamaican ancestry to her daughter, Zyra. She is a published Indigenous, anti-racism, and climate justice researcher, policy advisor, and restorative circle keeper with over 15 years of experience.

Larissa is also the Founder of Future Ancestors Services, a social impact and sustainability consulting firm that advances systemic barrier removal through anti-racism and ancestral accountability. Through an intergenerational, disabled, and queer team of professionals and advisors, they provide speaking, training, research and consulting services, and influencer and interview services to +400 diverse clients. They do this while centering decolonized and Indigenized practices, and are constantly reimagining how we can learn, relate, and work together in healthy ways.

Beyond her role as a labourer, Larissa is an avid rock climber and native plant enthusiast deeply connected to Kananaskis Country, on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising Siksika, Piikani and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda First Nation.
