Cheryl L’Hirondelle (Cree/Halfbreed; German/Polish) is an award winning and community-engaged interdisciplinary artist, singer/songwriter and critical thinker whose family is from Papaschase First Nation / amiskwaciy wâskahikan (Edmonton) and Kikino Metis Settlement, Alberta. Her work investigates and articulates the intersections of nêhiyawin (Cree worldview) and contemporary time-place incorporating sound, Indigenous languages, music, and old and new technology. Her current projects include: Why the Caged Bird Sings, a collaborative songwriting project with incarcerated women, men and detained youth; nîpawiwin ohci, a series of immersive media-rich installations created to evoke embodied concepts towards solidarity; and Singing Land- a multi-iterative international songwriting/sonic mapping project as a process towards personal treaty-making. She is currently a PhD candidate at University College Dublin.
