Brianne (Bree) Island is a nehiyaw iskwew / Cree woman from the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation, Treaty 8 territory. She is a practicing Woodland artist and self-taught visual artist.  Grounded in cultural protocols, her art is an intimate sharing of nehiyaw / Cree worldviews and teachings, and honours connections to land and spirit. She shares visual stories as acts of resistance, ancestral reminders on how to decolonize our minds, and a place where transformations can be witnessed. It is Bree's hope that her art will bring shared intergenerational healing to her family and community. 


Much of Bree’s current creative energy is focused on reclaiming language and imagining Indigenous futurisms. She creates art in both digital and traditional mediums, and in motion, to show that Indigenous peoples exist as living, breathing, and vibrant cultures. Bree’s mindful art practice is rooted in ensuring that no matter what the future looks like, we bring our Indigenous values and ancestral knowledge with us. Her work can be found online and on social media @bree.island @wearemixedcreatives

Land Recognition

We recognize the traditional and ancestral lands of the Haldimand Treaty on which we have the privilege of gathering. To the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Neutral First Nations, whose presence continues to enrich our communities both culturally and spiritually, thank you for your stewardship in helping us to foster an inclusive territory on which we live, work and play. May our presence today (and herein after) be one of unity and kinship, as we move forward in reconciling our history as a community and as a nation.
