ABOUT

My Cree name is Sitting Rock and I am a Nehiyaw (Plains Cree) artist from Maskwacis territory bordered within Alberta. I explore the use of storytelling methods from comic books and graphic novels. Many of the stories that are drawn are based on my own cultural upbringing and oral narratives shared with me by my First Nation Elders and grandparents. Learning the traditions of oral history, language, and culture has influenced and help shape my artwork. My websites are located at plinejo.blogspot.ca and plinejo.wordpress.com.

 

“Nehiyaw Girl’s Survival Guide” is from our FUTURES Issue (spring 2016).
