We are thrilled to welcome Azure Johnson to the Main Stage at the 2022 Edmonton Woman’s Show. Catch her at 2pm on Saturday and 12pm on Sunday! Azure is the Plains Cree Treaty 6 Nehiyew Iskew leading your community in indigenous education, arts, performance, and entrepreneurship. She wears many hats a mother, Traditional Knowledge-Keeper, Treaty Harvester, educator, designer, model, and Cree-ator. Raising her 4 boys to be strong, inspiring Indigenous men, she is proud to be breaking harmful narratives affecting Indigenous peoples as part of the last generation to attend Canada’s residential schools.

Through her work in educating the public on the historic truths of Indigenous experiences, as well as cultivating passion for traditional arts and knowledge, she is healing the greater community every day. Azure sets a fierce example for all by using her resourcefulness, ambition and creativity to manage a thriving business that paves the way for future generations. She also enjoys the lighter side of this work through artistic design, and uses a variety of mediums such as beading, sewing, and painting.

Her company, Azure & co., was founded on strong values that reflect honest leadership: focused on aiding the less fortunate, promoting truth in education, and helping all Treaty People towards real reconciliation through an Indigenous lens. They are contributing to a society of prosperity and integrity.

Her own educational background encompasses criminology, mental health, addictions, and psychology. Beyond the classroom, her wealth of knowledge stems from personal and communal experience – Azure loves volunteering her time to help her community and is a mighty advocate for the vulnerable.
