Janelle Silverwolf



Janelle Silverwolf – Queer 2Spirit Nisga’a woman from the house of Nagwau’un, of Laxgalts’ap, BC. She is an educator, beader, facilitator, writer, and Auntie. She is currently working with the University of British Columbia as an Educational Consultant. Her many years of experience in educational institutions and Indigenous community work have always been grounded by her artistic expression, cultural and family teachings. Art and culture are the roots that hold her up in institutional work. She uses her writing and beadwork to tell stories of knowledges passed down, witnessed and earned. My vision for my beadwork has always been rooted in the belief that my creativity and pieces are my way of sharing my medicine with community.
