ROBERTA NAZIEL is a 2spirit person from the Wet’suwet’en and Gitxsan Nations currently working on the stolen lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples. Her art practice was influenced early in her life by her mother and grandmother, who taught her how to bead, make birch bark baskets, and tan moose hides. These days Roberta works more with paint, drawing, and mixed media. Drawing upon Indigenous ways of seeing the world, she is reimagining traditional stories passed down through oral tradition. Roberta is currently working on a piece that seeks to upgrade the story of the wild woman.
