Excerpt from an arts based paper I wrote on Indigenous Mothering, 2011

“I grew up with many great people, and so close to Lake Superior that the sound of the water roar was constant. I maintained relations with my family in Pic River First Nation, and found freedom sunning in the sand dunes with sisters, smelling the cedar forests, and being with family on reserve for most holidays and other family events. I found joy growing up in northern Ontario. Like most of the others I grew up with, I think we were fortunate to experience a life so close to Mother Earth.”
