Blaeser has been the recipient of awards for both writing and speaking, among these a Wisconsin Arts Board Fellowship in Poetry, a first book award from the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas, and three Pushcart Nominations. Her current creative project features “Picto-Poems” and brings her nature and wildlife photography together with poetry to explore intersecting ideas of Native place, nature, preservation, and spiritual sustenance.   Of Anishinaabe ancestry and an enrolled member of the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe, Blaeser grew up on White Earth Reservation in northwestern Minnesota.  She currently lives with her family in the woods and wetlands of rural Lyons Township, Wisconsin.
