S.J. Okemow is a Nehiyaw (Cree) and Eastern European multidisciplinary artist. Âmî Osâwâpikones (Dear Dandelion) is her debut picture book. It is a love letter to that little yellow flower we see everywhere! It explores the aliveness of the Cree language as it adopts new words post-colonization and the resilience of Indigenous Peoples.

S.J. splits her time between Toronto and Australia! We are very lucky to have her, in person, to share her story with us.
