Indigenous Authors:
A National

"Louise Halfe has listened with reverent attention to the beautiful, strong voices of her Cree grandmothers, and has allowed her own voice to dance with theirs. Exuberant, disturbing, and always deeply moving, the resulting poems roar, whisper, shout, and sing on the page.
