So what is a Taibossigai? Taibossigai is the original spelling of my maiden name, Debassige. My family originates from Manitoulin Island and North Bay in Ontario. I was born and raised in Thompson, Manitoba and lived in southern Manitoba for about 10 years before settling down in Edmonton, Alberta to work and live with my husband, Lyndon and my cute black cat, Maho.
