Jaqueline Moller is Métis and from the East Kootenays of B.C. She grew up learning, playing, and exploring the sacred lands of the Ktunaxa and Secwepemc Peoples. Like so many others, from very early in her life, she has been fascinated with nature and the mysterious artistry of Mother Earth. From the waters and trees to the animals and rocks, she cannot even express in words how much love and gratitude she has to keep company with such sacred beings. Jacqueline owns a small business called Kootana Crystal & Mineral that she cherishes. She truly loves what she does. She curates and collects gems, minerals, and fossils from around the earth into her collection. Jacqueline lives a rather nomadic lifestyle, travelling to different gem shows, outdoor markets, and festivals, mainly in B.C. and Alberta. She often thinks of Kootana as a trading post. She loves to travel and meeting so many people from all over the world. Find Jacqueline’s work on Instagram @kootanacrystals.
