"Mikw Chiyâm is an interdisciplinary arts program that was commissioned by the Cree School Board in 2015. The program aims to increase student retention and attachment to school by providing an alternative space for creative learning. Mikw Chiyâm aims to inspire youth by creating contexts for students to collaborate with professional Canadian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and express their personal and collective voices through artistic expression."

"Inspired by a line by Mohawk/Tuscarora poet Janet Rogers, Recover All That Is Ours, is an exhibition redefining the corporation of Canada, and its 500 hundred year-old relationship with Turtle Island through decolonial poetics, mythology, and contemporary multi-disciplinary Indigenous art practices."

  • May - Qu'Appelle Valley, Saskatchewan to work on the Beacon Project. "The Beacon Project is a series of multimedia creations in collaboration with Indigenous communities along The Great Trail. A companion piece to the feature documentary 500 Days in the Wild — the four-year, 23,000 km ecological and reconciliation pilgrimage of filmmaker Dianne Whelan — The Beacon Project is an exploration of the beacons that guide Dianne on her journey, and the wisdom of those that live close to the land. The Beacon Project engages youth, artists, Elders and Grandmothers in a collaborative process of listening and sharing, and ask the questions, What has been lost? What do we need to know? The films emerge out of this shared reflection and dialogue, and are an honouring of signals, guides, warnings and celebrations as we continue our journey into the future."
  • July 9 to August 20 - Artist-in-Residency with the Natural and Manufactured Artist Residency, Klondike Institute of Art & Culture, Dawson City, Yukon, on the traditional and unceded territory of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in.
