M'Chigeeng First Nation
My name is Elena Abel, I am an Ojibwe + Anishinaabe Kwe, member of M'Chigeeng First Nation. Currently, I am living on unceded Algonquin territory. I work full-time as a Reconciliation consultant.
During my free time, I enjoy creating original graphic designs for t-shirts, stickers, signs, decals and other home decor. I am self-taught in design and fabrication, but I take inspiration from Indigenous activists, social justice movements, academia, knowledge keepers, current events and pop culture. I like to combine contemporary and traditional designs and present products that foster Indigenous pride.
