Leslie Robert Sam was born in Duncan, BC in 1973. He adopted the artist name lessLIE in reference to the deception and betrayal that First Nations peoples suffered as a result of colonization.
“My name is Melaney Gleeson-Lyall (Point). I was born on the unceded, ancestral lands of my ancestors, the Musqueam people, known as Vancouver, B.C. Between my adopted family and First Nations bio families, I have 17 siblings.
I am an artist, author, indigenous doTerra essential oil wellness advocate and jeweller. I am an introverted contemplative and lifelong learner. Ever mindful, I stand in the strength of those who walked the earth before me. I am continually learning to live between cultures; between worlds.”
