Jaime Morse is Michif from northern Alberta, and grew up on her German immigrant Grandmother’s farm between Métis and First Nations communities. Jaime is the mother of two young women who have started their journey into post-secondary education, and of two sons — one of whom is finishing high school, while the other is about to enter preschool. Her children are dancers in the Michif family dance group called Prairie Fire, which performs at community and public engagements.

Jaime holds a B.A. in Canadian Studies from Carleton University (2004), and was the 2014 winner of the Ontario Arts Council Award for Emerging Artist. She is an Educator, Indigenous Programs and Outreach at the National Gallery of Canada, and is the owner of Indigenous Walks, a local walk-and-talk tour company. In addition, she is a visual artist who mentors and teaches fish-scale art, beadwork and the drawing of floral-inspired designs on animal hides/skins.
