My name is Cheyanne Connell (she/her). I am Dunne-Za Cree (West Moberly First Nations), and am a Doctoral Student in Socio-Cultural and Indigenous Anthropologist at the University of British Columbia and freelance artist/illustrator. My PhD research looks at the relationship between Dunne-Za Cree identity-making and traditional language. Broadly, my research interest is in contemporary Indigenous identity-making and expectations of traditional identity performance, which is also reflected in my art.
