Julie Pellissier-Lush, actress, and author of “My Mi’kmaq Mother,” was born in Summerside, PE in 1970. She grew up all over Eastern Canada and spent a number of years in Winnipeg, Manitoba before coming home. She writes, acts, and practices photography in order to preserve the history and culture of the Mi’kmaq people for future generations. In 2010, Julie wrote the poems for “Mi’kmaq Legends” –  a contemporary theatrical experience that combines poetry, music, dance, and theatre, performed by the Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors. Originally developed by the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI in 2011, the performance has become a sought-after feature at local and regional events. In 2016, the production won the Parks Canada Sustainable Tourism Award.

Julie lives in PEI with her husband Rick, her five children, and her granddaughter Miah.
