RBC Emerging Artists in Our Schools
RBC Emerging Artist 2017-18
A classically trained actress from the East Prairie Métis Settlement in Alberta, with connections to Atikameg First Nation in Treaty 8 territory, Roseanne aims to foster reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples through her art. Since her breakout role in the 2005 Steven Spielberg-produced miniseries INTO THE WEST, she has continued to grow as both an actress and a reconciliation advocate.
She provides workshops to Indigenous youth on subjects such as mental health and acting, and has starred in several TV and film projects, including the romantic drama MAÏNA, for which she received the Best Actress award at the American Indian Film Festival. Her recent projects include DARK NATURE, GUITAR LESSONS, and ACTING GOOD.
REEL CANADA champions emerging Canadian film talent through our Emerging Artists in Our Schools programme, proudly supported by the RBC Foundation through their Emerging Artists project.
