Grandmother Renee


Grandmother Renee is an artisan, a Holder of Names and the Genealogy of Six Nations, a storyteller through Woodland’s animal puppetry, a First Nations Doll Maker, a Traditional Counselor and Elder at local high schools, and a Traditional Dancer and Golden Age Smoke Dancer.

Grandmother Renee has recognized that many people, and Aboriginal peoples as well, have lost much of their connections to food or have formed unhealthy relationships to food through lack of easy access, the loss of traditional territories or hunting rights, or through a disconnect from teachings around traditional foods.
