Tell us about yourself. I am a writer, story-teller, educator and activist of Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg ancestry and I live in Nogojiwanong (Peterborough, Ontario). When did you realize you had a passion for writing? Recently. I’ve written since I was a kid, but I don’t think anyone ever saw that in me and I didn’t see it in myself either . . .



Driving down 48, Curious George’s gang sign tattooed on my right shoulder, your lips twitch to The Boss and I have lost my last quarter in the space between the seats. I still haven’t washed the paprikash smell from my ponytail . . .
