About the cover


Sue Gordon is a printmaker/painter living in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She has two children and a beautiful granddaughter who are a real source of inspiration for her.

Her artwork was chosen to illustrate this special joint issue on Aboriginal health because of its focus on fostering well-being through local foods. She created this monoprint with mixed media for the Manitoba Association of Community Health, Diabetes Prevention Project for Children (1999-2000). At that time, she worked on a project for kids who live mainly in the North. She was illustrating small books and cards to encourage a healthy lifestyle among the families that would receive them. She wished to show the energy and spirit of the kids, as well as some of the nutritious foods that could be part of their harvesting and cooking routines.
