Diane Wilson (Dakota), author of The Seed Keeper, uses personal experience to illustrate broader social and historical context. Wilson's memoir, Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past, won a 2006 Minnesota Book Award and her nonfiction book, Beloved Child: A Dakota Way of Life, was awarded the 2012 Barbara Sudler Award from History Colorado. She is a descendent of the Mdewakanton Oyate and enrolled on the Rosebud Reservation. Wilson currently serves as the Executive Director for the Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance.

Christine Day (Upper Skagit) grew up in Seattle, nestled between the sea, the mountains and the pages of her favorite books. Her debut novel, I Can Make This Promise, was a best book of the year from Kirkus, School Library Journal, NPR, and the Chicago Public Library, a Charlotte Huck Award Honor Book, an American Indian Youth Literature Award Honor Book and an OBOB 2020-2021 selection. Day lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.
