About the Author
Sheri’s Blackfoot and Stoney Nakoda name translates to “Singing Across the Water woman”. She is a mother, grandmother, and educator who currently lives in Calgary, Alberta in Treaty 7 territory. The inspiration to write a book came from lacking access to quality First Nation children’s stories to read to her grandchildren. Sheri’s goal in life is to heal from the effects of intergenerational trauma and be a content and balanced human being who uses her gifts and abilities to give back to community.
