Sharon Jinkerson-Brass is a member of Key First Nation (Anishnaabe) in Saskatchewan. After surviving the sixties scoop, she reunited with her family in the 1980s. For 30 years, Sharon has been a community leader working for social change for the Indigenous community in the areas of arts, culture, health, and community development. She is currently working on multiple multi-media projects in the Indigenous community on topics related to health, re-matriation, and cultural healing.
We’re sharing some of Sharon’s thoughts, recorded during the test run residency of our SeedPool collaborative platform in late 2022. With knowledge of both Indigenous wisdom and western science, Sharon discusses what is needed for a seed to explode with life.
