I am a Mi'kmaq native of Nova Scotia. I hold two degrees in fine art and have spent my life as an exhibiting artist. I have also publish my writing and poetry over the years. I have learned native spirituality under various elders from different nations. My knowledge of plant medicines comes from the teachings of elders as well as extensive research in works published on the subject from Canada and abroad. I have also worked in the field gathering and preparing my own medicines in the traditional ways. I am a drum carrier and a medicine keeper. The healing journey never ends and neither does the learning and teaching of medicine plants.
