An Indigenous Artist’s Journey of Learning, Creating, and Holding Space for Herself and Others
Artwork by Adele ᒪᐢᑿ ᐃᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau

A Nehiyaw Métis visual artist, Adele ᒪᐢᑿ ᐃᐢᑵᐤ Arseneau creates work asking the audience to consider current social and environmental issues. Her intent is to educate from an indigenous perspective and to counteract stereotypes. Previously a painter, she now uses the mediums of wood carving, beadwork and digital art to reclaim her displaced heritage and language. Born in BC, far from her family’s traditional territories, the significance of the place and culture she was raised in is an integral part of her story. Adopted by the Luk sil loo Clan, Dakelh, and trained with master carver, Xwalacktun of Squamish Nation, she uses traditional form line in a contemporary manner.
