Artist Bio

 Janelle “ecoaborijanelle” Pewapsconias (she/her) is a multidimensional nehīyaw spoken word artist based in Little Pine First Nation of the Treaty 6 Prairies. Her dedication to honour the Earth inspires her to read, perform, and design to speak to Indigenous ways of being, knowing, and thriving, despite ongoing settler colonialism in Canada. Influenced by the poetry slam and Cree oral storytelling customs, ecoaborijanelle shared poetry in a TEDx Talk, competed slam poetry nationally twice, and published poetry in the American Indian Culture Research Journal. Janelle lives in her home community with her son and dog, surrounded by the endless living skies and rolling prairies.
