Angela Miracle Gladue is an award winning dancer, choreographer, educator, and emerging fashion designer from amiskwaciwâskahikan (Edmonton, Alberta - Treaty 6 territory) and is a proud member of Papaschase and Frog Lake First Nation.
Angela established Miss Chief Rocka in 2012 as a tribute to hip-hop and her culture after creating a beaded boombox medallion to honour her brother Tony Gladue - an aspiring emcee who shared a passion for hip-hop, but died in the care of children services in 2006.
Her work was recently featured at A Space Gallery in Toronto, Ontario, in an exhibition called ‘Thunderstruck: Physical Landscapes’ which was also presented at the Âjagemô Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario where she sold her first piece to the Art Bank of Canada.
Angela’s beaded accessories have been worn by Hip-Hop artists such as Sharaya J, Lady C, and Ernie Paniccioli to name a few.
She has over 15 years of professional dance experience as an entertainer and has taught in countless schools, Indigenous communities, youth centres and conferences throughout North America since 2004.
Angela believes in a responsibility to share the knowledge she has gained and continues to pursue dance education while using her existing skills to mentor others so they can succeed.
Currently, Angela tours with the Juno Award winning group A Tribe Called Red and is available for performance opportunities, teaching & speaking engagements.
