Jade Hanuse

My name is Jade Hanuse. My Nuxalk name is Anuximana; which means the sunlight
shining through the smokehouse hole in the early morning. I descend from the
Nuxalk and Kwakwaka’wakw Nations and I was raised back and forth from Bella
Coola to Port Hardy, BC. Growing up in two different cultures I was able to find art
and connect early on in my life.

I spend as much time as I can playing in the mountains – sun, rain, snow. I’m a happy camper! Post-hike, you’ll find me doodling or painting with a delicious pint of IPA or mint chocolate chip ice cream by my side.
