My name is Charlene Chapman. I am an Indigenous woman from British Columbia and my spirit name is Red Bear. I love to bead anything. I have been a member of PASAN for many years, and have attended programs including Confluence Arts Collective’s theatre program, where we co-created the play The Countess and Me. Confluence was my first time doing theatre and it was really fun. Through The Countess and Me we became more than friends, we became one big family. I am now an Outreach Harm Reduction worker.
