Cha Nimke Nagwagin Kwe, also known as Jasmin Glaw, is a self-driven Indigenous Artist. She is the Co-Founder of The Sweetgrass Sisters Collective and youth advocate of Algonquin and German decent from Hamilton, ON. She spent much of her childhood between her home in Hamilton and her mother’s home community of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation. Jasmine grew up normalized to the art Jingle Dress dancing and within the Pow Wow ceremony as a whole. Her drive comes from being the post-generation of unexposed children not raised on-reserve.
As a artist she draws her inspiration from dreams. A place of which her wandering spirit is free of the outside world. Much of her work centralizes around the themes of identity, belonging, and the teachings of the strawberry.
Some of her longer-term goals are to help motivate and encourage Indigenous youth. She want them to invest more time in learning more about culture and traditional languages. To empower mixed race Indigenous peoples to stand proud in their identity. To further integrate traditional knowledge into her artwork.
