“Meegwitch” in Ojibway means “Creator”, and “hi hi” is, “thank you”. In this episode Laura begins to rejoice and is thankful in how fortunate she and all artists are to have their artistic gifts. She meets JR Bjornson, a blind and anxious stand-up guy, that is also, an up-and-coming stand-up comedian! She also visits the farm of a groundbreaking visual artist, Candace Lipischak, who brings a fresh application of the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Laura also has an opportunity to visit the museum of an Indigenous hero she’s always wanted to know more about, Louis Riel. The season ends with a grand musical finale with a very thankful multicultural choir!
