Her debut album (released May 2015) is titled Maskawasiwin, a Cree word for Strength.

About The Book

In the book, authors Makwa Ogimaa (Jerry Fontaine) and Ka-pi-ta-aht (Don McCaskill) share their di-bah-ji-mo-wi-nan (stories of personal experience) in order to provide insight into the cultural, political, social, and academic events of the past fifty years of Ojibway-Anishinabe resistance in Canada.

They suggest that Ojibway-Anishinabe i-zhi-chi-gay-win zhigo kayn-dah-so-win — or “Ways of doing and knowing” — can provide alternative ways of living and thriving in today’s world.
