about this item

The Cree word, cîhcêwêsin, means a "twisting echo". Edited by award-winning author, artist and teacher, Neal McLeod, Cîhcêwêsin features the best new writers from several of Saskatchewan's First Nations. Accomplished and compelling, many of these poems have a strong political edge, embracing contemporary issues from the Truth and Reconciliation process to the "Idle No More" movement. The anthology also draws on many traditional themes including the Trickster, the role of family and community, and healing. This is a landmark anthology of emerging poets who will undoubtedly publish books of their own in years to come. Cîhcêwêsin: New Poetry from Indigenous Saskatchewan is imbued with innovative writing combined with a strong sense of narrative tradition .
