Through the healing medicine of language, Rita Bouvier leads the reader into the world of the Métis and Cree to experience first hand the wisdom and generosity that she inherited in her birthright. Some of these poems are steeped in the tradition of the dramatic monologue; others are used as dialogue anchors to the rich oral traditions of First Nations people. Throughout all, though, is the subtle but confident voice of Rita Bouvier who, like a spirit guide, leads the reader into a cultural place where wisdom comes from children, and laughter from elders. In papîyâhtak poetry is used to “forge a vision that many can embrace”. To order, click here.
