nêhiyaw iskwew

I am a Cree woman from Treaty Six territory, Saddle Lake Cree Nation. I graduated from University nuhelot’įne thaiyots’į nistameyimâkanak Blue Quills iyiniw pimâtisiwin kiskeyihtamowin Doctoral Program in 2017. Since October 2017, my role as Assistant Professor with the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta is helping me to evolving my research, creative process, and teaching-learning scholarship to focus on resilience, relationships, and autonomy.

 I am a human of this earth. I humbly works towards living by the Laws of these lands that my ancestors were so inherently connected to, that continue to guide my way of living, while evolving with the ever changing present. I am committed to connecting to the spirit of nêhiyawewin, my Cree language, so that I may learn to language of this land like nikihci-âniskotâpânak (ancestors) and share what I may with others.

Helping one another is so important to living peacefully with one another. When you support artists you are supporting communities. I am of service to the future generations, to share what I can to ensure they know who they are and where they come from, this is an important Natural Law.

Reconciliation through art and storytelling

This digital story is about two nehiyawak who traveled to over 24 communities within 9 months across Treaty Six territory to share their stories, prayers and songs of resilience through art experiential learning. Art is ceremony.
