Here’s what previous instructors say about their experience Shawnesia Ottawa is from the Algonquin community of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, located near Maniwaki, QC. She is a recent graduate of Canadore College’s Indigenous Wellness and Addictions Prevention Program and is currently a Junior Counsellor at the Maniwaki Native Friendship Centre. In 2019 she became an Indigenous STEAM instructor at Camp Kikandaaswiwin Mookiisin. Shawnesia is passionate about language and cultural revitalization and has a creative mind. Beading, harvesting, sewing, carving, painting and working with birch bark are just some of the things she does in her spare time. Check out Shawnesia’s video, shown here.
