Reviews

"I first received Jackie's colouring book as a gift. I was immediately struck by the feminine strength, beauty and resiliency in her drawings. The teachings she shares in the back of the colouring book add so much spiritual depth to her already powerful work! Hiy hiy mistahi Jackie for sharing your gifts of art and words, along with your cultural teachings with your drawings.--Lynette La Fontaine, Aboriginal nurse educator with Chee Mamuk, BC CDC
"Jackie's work is that medicine that connects us all to a time when the earth and her women were equally respected as sacred --life givers, leaders, teachers and healers. Her genius is to help make us remember."--Leslie Spillett, Ka Ni Kanichihk, Winnipeg
"The importance of celebrating Indigenous women and girls' space and place within our collective journey toward healing, empowerment and reconciliation cannot be overstated. When we, as Indigenous women and girls, see ourselves reflected in positive and powerful ways, it renders emotional and spiritual transformative change in our lives. Jackie's art, her book and her life fundamentally contribute to the positive imagery of Indigenous women and offers a sacred way to understand one another moving toward reconciliation in Canada."--Nahanni Fontaine, NDP MLA for St. Johns, Legislative Assembly of Manitoba
