More Description

In her first idiom-shattering book of poetry, Wanda John-Kehewin combines Aboriginal oral tradition with dramatic narrative to address the effects of colonization, alcohol addiction, familial abandonment, religious authority, sexual abuse, and the pain of mourning. She admonishes humanity for its seeming lack of conscience in poems journeying from turmoil on the Gaza Strip to rapidly dissolving ice floes.

Cree poet Wanda John-Kehewin has studied criminology, sociology, Aboriginal studies, and creative writing while attending Simon Fraser University's The Writer's Studio writing program. She uses writing as a therapeutic medium for understanding and responding to the near decimation of Native culture, language, and tradition.
