Jordan taught me about that authentic, unapologetic voice. He encouraged me to be proudly Anishinaabe in my prose, and to not scrub or sanitize the essence of my identity as storyteller. As a result, I was able to hone my narrative voice, and the lessons he taught me through that process continue to emerge in the fiction that I write today. He showed me how to bring Indigenous people together through prose by speaking my truth.”
