Raised in the small town of Massey in the middle of Anishinaabe Country, Lisa is a firebreathing Oji-Cree who embraces her Scottish roots. She is an emerging actress and playwright and graduate from Centre for Indigenous Theatre. CIT productions include: The Red Moon (Song Girl), Red Romance: A Two Step Program (Hope), Coyote City (Boo), White Rabbit, Bear and Eagle (Matilda), The Rez Sisters (Marie-Adele) and The Ebb of Dreaming (Claire). Film credit: Wave A Red Flag (film) Recently she had the pleasure to workshop her first written piece, Wagoosh Kwewag or the Wagoosh Women, at the Native Canadian Centre and will be continuing to further develop this one-woman show once she becomes alumni.
To all my family and friends, the CIT staff and faculty, and of course all my classmates over the past three years, I would like to say Chi Miigweetch. It was a time like no other. Lived, learned and loved.
