Marika Swan

Marika Swan is a Tla-o-qui-aht woman born out in the wilds of the west coast, on an island, on the beach, in a spot where whaling chiefs used to bring the whales in.

Since 2005, Marika has been working with Redwire Native Youth Media Society, which has shown her the importance of healing through expression.
