Christine Sioui Wawanoloath


    Born in Wendake (QC), multidisciplinary artist Christine Sioui Wawanoloath studied Art, Photography, and History at Manitou College, the first Indigenous college in Quebec. She is both Wendat (Huron) from her father’s side and Abenaki by her mother’s. After completing her studies in Montreal, she worked as a print photographer, darkroom technician, graphic designer, and journalist for Indigenous publications in Ottawa (ON), Frobisher Bay (NU) and Val-d'Or (QC). She has been working in visual art and literature for over 40 years and uses a variety of techniques to create images: paint, ink, digital, collage, and stamping. She also makes sculptures, puppets, and masks through assemblage. In addition, the Orchestre symphonique de Québec created an adaptation of one of her tales, Le clan des oiseaux, for a show presented during the 400th anniversary of Quebec City. She has also participated in numerous exhibitions as a visual artist.
