Renata is an Ojibway educator, originally from Sandy Bay First Nation who has lived in Portage la Prairie for 18 years. She has taught art, social studies and Indigenous culture at Portage Collegiate Institute for five years

Renata is passionate about beading, and started in high school. She began making powwow regalia seven years ago, when her daughters started powwow dancing.
