Healing Journey

Moments with our participants and Knowledge Keepers from Season 3

Art saved Rene Meshake. A residential school survivor, Rene Meshake fell into drugs and alcohol and lived on the streets of Toronto before finding his way back to his Ojibwe and artistic roots. Today he is a prolific interdisciplinary artist who has reconciled with his past. He mentors Indigenous youth like Ziibiwan Rivers, a foster care survivor and talented electronic musician.

To see more of Rene, watch the episode Healing Arts on Season 3 of WIOT on APTN.
