Ja aa haanach’e

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 Anthropology at the University of British Columbia and freelance artist/illustrator. For my PhD, my research project 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.

Currently, I am preparing for my PhD comprehensive exams, but am still available for art commissions relating to Indigenous-led or focused projects and initiatives.

2021, Master of Arts, Anthropology​

2019, Bachelor of Arts, Hons. with Distinction, Anthropology
