Megan Kanerahtenha:wi Whyte is an artist, art educator and art therapist from the Kanien’kehá:ka First Nation. She completed her Master’s Degree at Concordia University in Art Therapy with a focus on addressing First Nations multigenerational trauma through the creative arts. Situating her initial research on the intersections between the Expressive Therapies Continuum and an Indigenous way of knowing, Megan continually explores how cultural identity and brain development co-exist within art-making in order to develop a culturally safe approach to Art Therapy. As an art therapist, Megan provides art therapy services to First Nations families in private practice, within the public-school system of her community and to male Indigenous inmates at a federal correctional institution. Outside of this art therapy practice, Megan also explores environmental, cultural, reproductive, and social justice in both her own art-making as well as well as through grassroots community art projects and journalism.
