She is also a co-founder and the current director of TRIBE, a Canadian aboriginal arts organization. Blondeau’s work, including her stage personas such as the now-famous Belle Sauvage, confronts and co-opts conventional stereotypes of First Nations women.

The performance personae she has created refer to the damage of colonialism and to the ironic pleasures of displacement and resistance.
