Renae Morriseau has been named the Vancouver Public Library 2016 Aboriginal Storyteller in residence.
The multi-talented artist is of Cree and Saulteaux descent and originally hails from Manitoba.

She adds she hopes she can pass on some of her First Nation culture to non-First Nations.
She also encourages young people to not be afraid to find their creative voice.
Morrisseau’s inaugural event as aboriginal storyteller in residence is on March 31st.
