About the Author

I was taken from my mother at birth and adopted by a white family. I didn’t find out until I was in my teens that I was from the north country of British Columbia, descended from the Sekani Nation (which means "mountain people") The Sekani are medicine healers, This collection is dedicated to all the travelers I met as I traveled the pathways of both the dark and the red road. This book is dedicated from my heart to the many elders who shared their spiritual experiences and who embrace their cultures in the ways they live. My Indian name Sus' naqua ootsin' (the Wisdomkeeper) was given to me by a 100 year old lady who looked deep into my eyes and saw into my soul. My journey started on one of the Darkest Days of my life – when I finally decided to put on a my red running shoes and follow the magic road. All My Relations………

More About the Author

From stories of Native American elders teaching their young people with the kind of campfire stories that hearken to the fables of Aesop, to descriptions and explanations of cultural ceremonies and traditional healing methods, herbal remedies, the herbs and their uses, and descriptions of how to prepare and use them. From the grandmothers come rare and unusual recipes, collections that have probably passed out of the mainstream knowledge, and clever use of ordinary and unusual foods. Then come the grandfather stories telling of my journey from a life consumed by addictions and false teachings to a cultural and spiritual awakening. To the trials and tribulations and ultimate embrace of the red road. My journey, my conversations with the ancestors in the spirit world, and my experiences in traveling with and learning from elders and other teachers. Available now in ebook and print

Gifts from the Grandmother's is a very well put together book, I find a lot of the reading makes me remember things I was taught from my Cree grandmother and my father. The recipes and readings are very much like I have been taught even when learning of other Indian ways.

This was one of the first cookbooks I purchased on my kindle when I first started getting into cooking (in 2010). I was immediately impressed with the simple elegance in both the author's writing and recipes. I felt connected both to the food and to the spirit in which it was once (and I am sure still is) prepared in a way that I haven't been able to get from many other cookbooks. In fact only 2 or 3 others that I can think of have left me with such a lasting impression.

There are some minor flaws in the writing, but it seems, to me anyway, that the beauty of this book shines through with that. Lately, with so many indie kindle cookbooks ripped (stolen) right from webpages I got a sense with this book of the actual person who wrote it.

I haven't tried any of the recipes, and because I have food allergies I may never. I just enjoyed the book.
