Dawn Marie Marchand is a member of Cold Lake First Nations and is a Cree and Metis Artist who is no stranger to Indigenous issues and activism. Currently she holds the position of the inaugural Indigenous Artist in Residence for the City of Edmonton. As a student of the Boreal Forest Institute, she met and was in studio with some great teachers and mentors who continue to influence her work. She has spent many years using her artistic abilities to work with at-risk youth through art integration, helping them express their knowledge, and creating safe spaces to confront and heal from trauma. She believes that art is a necessary tool to help people. It is essential to cultural survivance and revitalization.
