Edmonton Untold Stories

Growing up, Lana Whiskeyjack lived in many different households. One place in particular had a significant impact on her life—a Ukrainian foster home that reminded her, in a positive way, that she is Cree. Lana attributes her resilience and her sense of cultural heritage to her maternal grandmother, the person who took her out of foster care. The two of them lived together until Lana moved in with her mother. In this new home, Lana stayed in her room a lot, drawing all over the walls.   When she was eighteen, she became a mother and moved to Red Deer to pursue art at Red Deer College. Her grandmother's advice to “Go to school, travel, and see as much as you can. Then return home to share what you learned, but do not forget where you came from,” has guided her throughout the years.  This is the fifth profile in our Edmonton Women Untold Stories series, produced in collaboration with Modern Muse Media.
