Description

This new collection of poems takes us into the midst of social and domestic injustice and questions what we are doing to our fellow human beings and the environment. She writes of Oka and Gustafson Lake, of the police shooting of a Native mother and child, as well as the NATO genocide in Yugoslavia. "Reflecting Fife's" viewpoints as a Cree, mother and lesbian, these poems cross boundaries, speaking to each of us in our "separate homelands", reminding us of the healing and transforming power of song, words and deeds. These are poems of revolution, of love, of inspiration.
