Cheryl L’Hirondelle (Cree/Metis; German/Polish), is a community-engaged interdisciplinary artist, singer/songwriter and new media curator originally from the land now known as Canada. Her creative practice is an investigation of the intersection of a Cree worldview (nêhiyawin) and contemporary time-space. Since the early 80s, L'Hirondelle has created, performed and presented work in a variety of artistic disciplines, including: music, performance art, theatre, performance poetry, storytelling, installation art and new media. In the early 90s, she began a parallel career as an arts consultant/advisor and programmer, cultural strategist/activist, and director/producer of both independent works and projects within national artist-run networks, the independent music industry, the prison system, First Nations bands, tribal councils and governmental funding agencies. She is also the sole proprietor of Miyoh Music, an Indigenous niche music publishing company, is a member of the OCAD University Indigenous Education Advisory and is currently a PhD candidate at SMARTLab/UCD in Dublin, Ireland.
