Aqua is an artist who is devoted to the integrity of her work and truly believes what Métis leader Louis Riel once said, “My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back.”
Aqua is as committed to her individual expression and evolution as she is to giving back and sharing with others. Nibii Waawaaskone works to empower youth and women, is a longstanding facilitator of community drum circles, a partner with several Indigenous organizations, regularly collaborates with likeminded artists, and facilitates cultural workshops across Ontario.
