I hope my work inspires people to connect to themselves and to all of creation. I want to encourage people to look to Indigenous wisdom, philosophies and stories as a solution for moving forward towards a collective future.

This campaign features a poem I wrote called 'Unsilent' to honour Indigenous youth with an effort to bear witness to the challenges they face.
'Enough is Enough' was released in January 2022. Special thank you to Regina Symphony Orchestra, Omar Ballantyne, Juliet Palmer and Karl Hirzer for making it come to life. Enjoy!
This poem seeks to bear witness to the collective grief that is present in the hearts of Indigenous people today. It is a hopeful offering that draws on the courage of children, trees, air and water.
Special thank you to Canada Council for the Arts for supporting the creation of my music and poetry.
A state-facing poem about resistance.
Maria Campbell, Rita Bouvier, Maxine Roy and Louise Halfe were convinced to write a rap song with Zoey Roy to share their message to young people to keep sharing their truths. In this song, you will hear stories from their own lives and messages they've picked up along the way.
This project was supported by the Indigenous Artist in Residence Program at the University of Saskatchewan Galleries.
A song about being alone in the pandemic and realizing that I too have some things to work through...
Capturing the essence of what it's like to live in my head while still trying to do great things.
Cuz why not?
Thanks to Taking IT Global for giving me support so I can spend time and energy making this.
