Jan Bourdeau Waboose

Jan Bourdeau Waboose, an Nishnawbe Ojibway, grew up in northern Ontario, both on and off-reserve. For many years she worked with Chiefs and Councils of First Nations communities. She began writing poetry and stories as a young child. Her writing has appeared in magazines, newspapers and anthologies such as Sweet Grass Road, The Colour of Resistance, Journeys, and Gatherings. Jan’s writing reflects her respect and love for our natural surroundings and her people’s traditions.
