Louise Profeit-LeBlanc

Louise is a Traditional Storyteller from the Nacho Nyak Dän First Nation of the Yukon Territory in Northern Canada. Her 30 year commitment to the cultural and artistic heritage of her people includes being cofounder of the Yukon International Storytelling Festival and one of the original members of the Society of Yukon Artists of Native Ancestry. Both of these organizations helped to inspire an artistic revival and recognition of Indigenous art in the territory, while laying a strong foundation for further advancement and evolution of all Indigenous art practices in the North. Louise was chosen by the Storytellers of Canada-Conteurs du Canada StorySave Project 2018 and recorded “Honouring Their Stories.”
