Cheyenne is a member of the Lennox Island First Nation, where she graduated from Westisle Composite High School and received the Jake Sark Memorial Bursary.

Since then, Cheyenne has worked for the Lennox Island Fisheries where she assisted fellow fishery wardens to enforce rules, regulations, and record the weight of the daily catches during the food fishery season. Cheyenne has also been involved with research projects, such as the Pool of Aboriginal Inventory Wildlife Inventory Specialist. For this project, she collected information on species at risk for participating First Nations throughout the Maritimes. Cheyenne has also worked on the wildlife poster project which involved supervising a few high school students and assisting them in searching for information about the extinction of several species of wildlife on Prince Edward Island. Cheyenne has recently assisted in managing Fisherman’s Pride; a supply shop based at the Ellerslie Biological Station, handling the fishers’ orders and shop inventory.

Cheyenne is currently employed as a Field Researcher for MCPEI. She is responsible for conducting interviews for the Mi’kmaq Land Use Project and is trained to use the map info software. Cheyenne will also be assisting with the Black Ash Project and the Mi’kmaq Place Names Project. If you would like to contribute to the Land Use Project, please contact Cheyenne at 436-5101.
