Cecilia John

Cecilia John is from the Saik’uz First Nation in the Dakelh Territory in Northern British Columbia. Her childhood connection to her late Atsiyan and ‘Atsoo (grandparents) Jasper and Mary Thomas, and to the land which is her home gave her inspiration to create these books. She gives respect to her Atsiyan and ‘Atsoo for teaching her their culture, traditions, and language, and to give great respect to the land always.
