Welcome to the first of many blog posts on this site! I'm so excited to be starting this small business and sharing my art with you.
A little about me:
My name is Leading Eagle Woman, and my English name is Jenna. I am Bear Clan and a member of Poplar River First Nation in Treaty 5 Territory. I currently live and work in Treaty 1 Territory as an Indigenous Youth Facilitator at a non-profit. I am so passionate about Indigenous resurgence and reconciliation in this nation. I've spent a lot of my life "walking in two worlds" as an Native woman - focused on living within a colonial society while also embracing and honouring my Indigenous routes.
I think reconciliation efforts are very important and we should all take steps in our daily lives to recognize and support Indigenous people and their history - the real history.
