Cheyenne has had prolific careers in both the photography and music industries. A professional soul-blues musician for several years, she wrote and produced two full-length albums under the stage name of Miss Rae. She moved to Paris for a spell in her earlier twenties to perform at cafés near Le Louvre and was part of the Jazz Sur Seine Festival.
Cheyenne studied filmmaking at the University of Winnipeg, where she wrote/directed/produced short films and music videos. She also photographed musicians in Winnipeg; contributing to magazines, newspapers, and books. An alumna of the NSI New Indigenous Voices, this program led to her assisting on production sets for APTN Indigenous Day Live and Media RendezVous Inc.
Most recently, Cheyenne has worked remotely from Montreal as a program manager at the National Screen Institute for the following programs: Art of Business Management – Indigenous Edition, IndigiDocs, and Tik Tok Accelerator for Indigenous Creators.
A multiracial woman, she is African, Indigenous (Cheyenne and Cree) and of settler descent (French and German). Cheyenne thrives on encouraging and guiding fellow artists to excel in their field.
