    Artist Bio: Roxanne Martin (Sault Ste. Marie) is a member of the OCT (Ontario College of Teachers), visual artist, children's book designer, jingle dress dancer and cultural activist. A graduate from the Cambrian College Theatre Arts Production. an honours graduate from the Bachelor of Fine Arts/minor in Anishinaabemowin studies from Algoma/Shingwauk University, Martin inspires her community to work with visual interpretations, storytelling and oral history of her surrounding lands and waters of lake Huron and Superior. As an Anishinaabe community practitioner, artist and seamstress, Martin’'s artwork and her practices blend personal biography with humour, cultural belonging and social critiques to engage her viewers in social conversations. She’s an award recipient for the Ashoka Changemaker Innovative approaches for First Nations people and received the MIchaelle Jean Foundation Youth Solidarity Project Recognition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. She has established a small business in Ojibwamowin by creating children's books in fabric and a catalyst for Thinking Rock Community Arts in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. Growing up in Toronto and Northern Ontario, it’s allowed her to have a better understanding of her own self identity and the cultural loss she has experienced as a child. Teaching in a northern community allows Martin the ability to speak her own language with students and peers, collaborate with community members and have a sense of belonging to better the future for many more generations to come.
