Marie-Céline Einish

Marie-Celine is a Montreal based dancer, craft - maker, actor and Aboriginal cultural advocate. Originally from the Naskapi Nation of Kawawachikamach, she grew up in the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, where she learned about Cree traditions, language, and teachings that still connect her to the land of Eeyou Istchee. She has performed across the country with traditional dancing and storytelling theatre, and has also travelled to many destinations, internationally, including France, Spain, Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina, and the U.S., showcasing Indigenous dance and culture, in addition to performances with award-winning artists including Indian City, A Tribe Called Red, Cris Derksen and DJ Shub.

Marie-Celine now works at NATIONAL Public Relations, as part of the Aboriginal Affairs team where she works with Aboriginal Organizations and communities across Quebec and Canada. Her work includes mandates on issues related to the promotion and dissemination of Indigenous culture, the protection of the traditional way of life, the defense of rights and recognition of ancestral lands, economic development and job creation in the communities.

Though she is passionate and dedicated about her career, Marie-Celine continues to grasp every opportunity to pass on her knowledge, teach youth, and continue to be involved artistically and culturally.
