Jaime Morse (formerly Koebel) is Nehiyaw/Michif (Cree/Métis) from Lac La Biche, AB and has lived in Ottawa since 2000. She is an Indigenous arts activator, activating stories and teachings of social, political and cultural matters through Indigenous arts and culture. As an artist, one of her practice includes carrying on traditions of fish scale art. Using the fishing net is a metaphor for repairing the relationship between father/daughter and grandchildren in the face of Day Schools, murder, 60's Scoop, incarceration, addiction and new family members discovered, Jaime, her dad Randy Mercier and her children find ways to connect over fish scale artwork.
