Louise Framst

Louise S. Framst of the Tahltan First Nation was born on May 29, 1944, in Lower Post, B.C., and raised in northern B.C. where she lives on a farm at Cecil Lake with her husband. With her B. Ed. (5-Year) in History and Special Education from UBC, Framst has experience as a teacher in a multi-grade rural school, a librarian and a learning assistant teacher.

Prior to her retirement, she served as an itinerant teacher facilitating programs for children with special needs. Framst has also edited a community project entitled A Community Tells Its Story: Cecil Lake 1925-2000 (2000), and self-published three Tahltan cookbooks and a series of children's titles including On My Walk (2001), Manny's Many Questions (1992) and Kelly's Garden (1992). Other Framst titles include Feathers (2004) and But I Cleaned My Room Last Year! (2002).

"The reason that I chose to become my own publisher," she says, "is that it was important to me to have my own interpretation put on stories that I chose to publish. It seemed to me that if others edited my work, then somehow what was important to me might be lost or misinterpreted."
