Sherry Lawson is a citizen of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, the third child of an Ojibway father and an Algonkian mother.

Known as a historian, author, public speaker and defender of the marginalized, Sherry has had an interesting checkered work history. Author of three autobiographical books, Sherry has spoken to groups as diverse as university women to library executives to victim crisis workers. Sherry is known as a stellar volunteer throughout Simcoe County. She prefers to be known for her latest very important non-paying job as Grandmother (Nookomis).  Free; drop-in.
