About the Artist

Rain Pierre, Owner, Artist & Motivational Speaker

My name is sɬə́məxʷ (Rain Pierre), meaning Rain, from Katzie First Nation in British Columbia, Canada. I am an artist, global speaker and owner of RainAwakens. I am an advocate for First Nation people, LGBTQ2S+ and recovery as I am bisexual and a person in recovery. When I look back on my journey at the end of my days, I want to look back on an adventure glowing with legacy and passion. I want to inspire others to dream while they are awake. It is time for our internal compass to turn to a direction of spirit, rather than money.
