Diana Frost

Diana Frost is an Algonquin Métis, engineer by day, and artist, musician and author by night. In the first part of her career, she travelled extensively and both volunteered and worked as an engineer overseas on projects to improve water and sanitation systems for small cities and mountain villages. As someone who has always been interested in other cultures, she has been lucky enough to work on projects in Colombia, Peru, China, and Rwanda. She is very proud of the work she did while with the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST). She helped to develop a “train the trainers” model so that by the time she left, she was able to verify she had helped 500,000 people get better water by empowering local NGOs to do the work themselves.

Indigenous Art and Wisdom Journal
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian;

In this journal, Diana Frost invites you to discover the beauty of Indigenous artwork from various artists across Canada, and to learn traditional teachings from elder John Sinclair, while having the space to meditate, write and create, and knowing that you are supporting Indigenous community projects.

Write to your heart's desire on lined pages, draw artwork on the blank pages, and get inspired by the elder’s writings at the bottom of some pages.

There are also small colourable images of eagles, buffalo, wolves, feathers and more scattered throughout the journa,l as well as fourteen pieces of full colour artwork by artists from different nations, including Mi’gmaq, Métis, Blackfoot, Inuit, Cree, Saulteaux, Mohawk, and more. These journals were designed with love and healing energy. Colouring It Forward will make a donation from each journal sold to a healing program.

Colouring It Forward Series

During her time at CAWST, Diana became aware of the poor quality of water on some Canadian First Nations reserves. She was unable to do anything about it because of the political situation and a lack of connections. From that knowledge and desire to help, plus the yearning to learn more about her roots, the idea for this project was born. And so, out of all of this, the Colouring It Forward project began to grow. Along with her appreciation and love for the artists’ work, the colouring book series has given her a chance to learn more about First Nations people, culture and wisdom. She also has the opportunity to ‘colour it forward’ with these books by giving a percentage of the proceeds from the books to the artists, elders and community projects to generate jobs, support small businesses and encourage higher education on reserves.
