Jasmine Falling Rain Frye is a member of the Navajo Nation. She moved to Canada in 2002 from Hollywood, California. Her second book,
Points of Rebellion: North American Aboriginals Who Fought for Justice (2012) recalls Aboriginals who "refused to cower in supplication to the authority of the US and Canadian governments. Of course, like all who oppose governmental injustice, they paid a heavy price for their obstinacy."

She is a Canadian citizen who studied architecture and interior design at university, and was a housing contractor for many years before deciding to enter the medical field and specialize in Aboriginal care. She and her husband currently reside in Ladysmith (Vancouver Island), British Columbia.
