Yakonnhéhkwen is a Kenyen’kéha word meaning ‘it sustains her’. Ann found healing in the rare traditional Iroquoian art form of black ash basketry. She also became keenly aware that her ancestors were there to show her the way. This is a short film about the depression that brought her to the brink of suicide and her journey home, back to her culture and learning to truly value herself as an Onkwehonwe woman and artist.
