Myre is an Algonquin/Québécois artist and member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation who employs a collaborative process as a strategy for engaging in conversations about identity, resilience and the politics of belonging. She is a graduate from Concordia University (MFA, 2002) and a recipient of Les Elles de l’art (2011), CALQ’s Prix à la création artistique pour la région des Laurentides (2009), and an Eiteljorg Fellowship (2003).

A Casual Reconstruction, is a video installation, born from the desire to have an honest discussion about identity and mixed identity as Indigenous people.
