Indigenous Counsellor, Artist and Activist
Leanna Marshall is of Anishinaabe and English descent. She is a band member of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug and is the mother of two vibrant daughters. Leanna is a visual artist who tells stories of her ancestors and of the land, by keeping close to this intersection she seeks to understand the essence of her relationship with both. Leanna also writes poetry and uses performance to express social inequities and to demonstrate actions of kind-heartedness to work through the effects of colonial violence. She thrives when working with community, and in a way that is based on reciprocity and connection.
