Elder MaNee ChachabyMa-Nee has faced numerous challenges in her life that have prompted her to embark on a path of spiritual healing through art.  She was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and was adopted by a French Canadian family.  She was then found and returned home to her Cree kokum at the age of two to be raised in a remote Ojibwe community north of Lake Nipigon.  Being a two-spirited Elder and storyteller, she uses various media for personal and community spiritual healing.  She is visually impaired and her art tells a story of the journey people face each day.  Ma-Nee has also authored, A Two-Spirit Journey: The Autobiography of a Lesbian Ojibwa-Cree Elder; a compelling and harrowing, but ultimately uplifting story of resilience and self-discovery.
