Mark your calendars! Two very special events are happening next week, featuring two amazing Indigenous writers who deal with themes of healing for different ages. . . 📚 "Legacy" examines community breakdown through the long term effects of colonization; Suzanne Methot shows how all is not lost in centering Indigenous ways of knowing. Includes a panel discussion with Dianne Hill (Ka'nikonhriyohtshera Learning Centre & Healing Lodge) & Stephanie Matchiwati (Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto) Wed, Mar 20th, 7:30-9:30pm at 750 Spadina Avenue, fully wheelchair accessible, FREE . . 📚 "Lillian & Kokomis" explores the life of a girl of Indigenous and white ancestry, shuffled around foster homes and isolated from her peers; she finds a sense of belonging from a surprising Indigenous spirit, allowing her to explore her traditional ways. Joining us is Chief Stacey Laforme of the Mississaugas of the Anishinaabe, also the poet/author of Living in the Tall Grass: Poems of Reconciliation. Thurs Mar 21st, 7:00-9:00pm here at the shop!

Diane Burns (1956-2006) was a Poet born in Lawrence, KS. Her father was Chemehuevi and her mother Anishinabe. When she was 10 her parents moved to the Lac Courte Oreilles reservation in Wisconsin and later to Wahpeton, ND. Burns was educated at Barnard University. In the 1980s, she became a member of the Lower East Side poetry community, reading her work at the Bowery Poetry Club, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, and the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church. Along with Allen Ginsberg, Joy Harjo, and Pedro Pietri, she was invited by the Sandinista government to visit Nicaragua for the Ruben Dario Poetry Festival. In her direct, wry poems, Burns engages themes of Native American identity and stereotypes. She published a single volume of poems during her life, Riding the One-Eyed Ford (1981). She lived in New York City until her death at the age of 49 from liver and kidney failure.

This book of poems by Chicana/Indigenous poet Casandra Lopez has affected me profoundly. Her exploration of the terrain of violence, grief, loss and redemption stretches from the citrus trees and bloody concrete of the Inland Empire of Southern California to the high country grasses of New Mexico. It drops a week from today from the University of Arizona Press. If you only read one book of poetry this year then this should be the one. #brotherbullet #brothersofthegun #casandralópez #chicanapoets #indigenouspoets #southerncalifornia #inlandempire #saltansea #universityofarizonapress #universitypress #newpoetry #love #loss #grief #citrus #highdesert #mydissapearingwest #highdesertmystic
