Curator & Owner
Sheena Bradley was born in Treaty 6 territory and now, with her husband and two kids, calls nistawâyâw (Fort McMurray) in Treaty 8 home. Sitting close to the Athabasca River, Sheena feels a strong sense of ancestral roots, and feels strengthened by the history in the waters, near where her grandmother was born on the banks of Lake Athabasca. Sheena’s great-grandmother Kitty Boucher and great-grandfather Joe Monkman created their first home in Goldfields, Sask,, and paddled on Lake Athabasca where they planted strong roots. Her paternal ancestors settled near the Wandering River area, where Sheena also harvests medicines from today.
