Award-winning author and playwright Drew Hayden Taylor's literary work examines contemporary Aboriginal issues through a uniquely comedic lens. He has previously served as Writer in Residence at the University of Michigan, the University of Western Ontario, and the
University of Lüneburg, as well as serving as the Artistic Director of Canada's premiere Aboriginal theatre company, Native Earth Performing Arts. His 2010 book 'Motorcycles and Sweetgrass' was nominated for the Governor General's Award in fiction - his second nomination. A contemporary storyteller and humourist, through his various works Taylor says he has tried to 'educate and inform the world about the issues that reflect, celebrate, and interfere in the lives of Canada's First Nations peoples'. Drew Hayden Taylor is originally from the Curve Lake First Nation.
