10am: Carol Daniels
There is nothing that gives Carol Daniels a greater amount of joy than celebrating Saskatchewan - whether it be through storytelling or singing & drumming. Carol is Cree & Chipewyan, whose roots are in Sandy Bay, Northern Saskatchewan. Her unique combination of art - which also includes writing & visual art - is a tribute of her love of family, culture and community.
For 3 decades, Carol Daniels has been primarily a member of the media, in television and radio. In 1989 she joined CBC Newsworld, becoming the first aboriginal woman to anchor a national news broadcast in Canada, and later became original host of "In-Vision News" on APTN. She has worked for many radio and television networks in Canada, most recently leaving a position with CBC North, where the newscast she anchored won Best Newscast, two years in a row, as awarded by the Radio and Television News Directors of Canada.
She is also a professional actor, having been seen in series television shows like "North of 60", "Lonesome Dove" and "Viper". Carol completed her artwork for a solo exhibit back in May 2011, at the Elsie Scherle Art Gallery at the Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre in Regina Beach, Saskatchewan. The exhibit is entitled "Stations of the Crossed" and deals with historical and current day mistreatment of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada and in Saskatchewan.
In 2010, Carol was a proud recipient of a grant from the Saskatchewan Arts Board, to continue work on her children's book, entitled "Kookum's Tablecloth".
