Noel has called Stratford home for over two decades. She was born on the Birdtail Reserve in Manitoba, and lived in Cochrane at one time.

In a statement, Rideau Hall says Noel is being recognized for her “unique work in visual arts and her advocacy of the creative expression of Indigenous communities.”
