Kerriann Cardinal is Metis and originally from Fort McMurray, AB. She is an actor, storyteller and theatre artist. After graduating from the Tooba Physical Theatre Centre, she trained in dance-theatre at the Freehold Theatre Lab Studio in Seattle, WA. Since then she has had the opportunity to work with and learn from many reputable Aboriginal and Canadian theatre artists.

The idea for "A Mile In My Moccasins" began with my gran, who raised me and connected me to our culture and its traditions. The moccasins she made represent her, our heritage and symbolize forgotten pieces of my past and identity. Through the process of exploration and investigation using my body - physically creating images, characters and stories - I discovered that who I am is irrevocably tied to these moccasins. So as I continue on this journey of "A Mile In My Moccasin"s, my work evolves as does my understanding of where I come from and where I'm going.
