Megan Kanerahtenha:wi Whyte is an artist, art educator and art therapist from the Mohawk First Nation. She completed her MA at Concordia University in Art Therapy, with a focus on addressing multigenerational trauma, identity and attachment through the creative arts. Situating her research in the Expressive Therapies Continuum and an Indigenous way of knowing, Megan continually explores how cultural identity and brain development co-exist with material interaction. Occupationally, Megan provides art therapy to First Nations children within the school system of her community, male Indigenous inmates at a medium security prison and for all backgrounds privately. Outside of her art therapy practice, Megan also explores social change through community art happenings and workshops whose intersections between healthy relations, indigenous ‘womanism’, as well as environmental, reproductive, and social justice inspire her own art-making.
