Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Marie-Cecile Kakgoosh Nottaway-Wawatie. But everyone calls me Cezin, so can you.

I am of Algonquin ancestry, born in Rapid Lake, but raised in the Parc de la Verendrye, QC. I come from a long line of strong Anishinabe First Nation women, who all have contributed to the proud and hard working person I am today. 


I called my  business WAWATAY CATERING in honor of my ancestors, as it is believed that the northern lights are the colors of the spirits of our ancestors who continue to guide us from the spirit world.


After receiving my diploma in Chef Training and Culinary Management from Algonquin College in 2005, I set my family roots in Kitigan Zibi Algonquin First Nation.
I am fluent in Algonquin, English and French.
