Autumn Whiteway (“Night Singing Woman”) is a Saulteaux/Métis visual artist, traditional craftworker and curator. As an archaeologist, she has always been curious about the material culture produced by her ancestors, in addition to traditional knowledge passed down through the generations. This curiosity led her on a path of discovery, to learn traditional indigenous crafts such as drum and rattle making, moose and caribou hair tufting, fish scale art, porcupine quillwork, beadwork, dreamcatchers and jewelry. Inspired by artists such as Norval Morrisseau and Kent Monkman, she additionally explores Indigenous themes from a contemporary perspective through painting and photography. Her painting and digital art is primarily focused on the heavily symbolic Woodland Style of Indigenous art. Her photography, on the other hand, is used as a form of activism to highlight Indigenous issues.
