Ma-Neehas faced numerous challenges in her life that have prompted her to embark on a path of spiritual healing through art. She was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and was adopted by a French Canadian family. She was then found and returned home to her kokum at the age of two to be raised in Omabika, a community north of Lake Nipigon.
