Alyssa Bardy is a mother, wife, photographer, and a lover of the land. She is Upper Cayuga from Six Nations of the Grand River and mixed-European settler. Usually with her camera, binoculars, and children in tow, she is the creator of Chicory Wild Creative.
Alyssa’s photography captures the stories of motherhood, Indigenous reconnection, nationhood, and our interconnectedness with land. With a special focus on Indigenous language revitalization, story-telling, and knowledge sharing, Alyssa uses the lens as a tool for herself, her children, and future generations to learn and share the brilliance and beauty of both culture and creation.
Alyssa currently resides on and draws inspiration from the shores of the Bay of Quinte, her family’s traditional territory.
