Unearthing of Secrets, Gathering of Truths

13 April 2018 Published in Poetry

To unearth our secrets means we must face our past, and in doing so, we will find our voice.

 Unearthing of Secrets: Gathering of Truths delves into the life and the healing of an lnnininew women from the ancestral lands of the Moshkekowok, now called Northern Ontario . It is through the process of writing broken poetry; visual poetry rooted in the haunting memories of her childhood that she provides the reader a glimpse into the mind of child survivor who was saved by her ancestors. This thought provoking poetry sheds light on a personal account of how she comes to terms with intergenerational trauma inflicted by the residential school system.

Unearthing of Secrets: Gathering of Truths explores the heartfelt and evocative fragmented experiences through the eyes of an Indigenous woman. Through the honesty of her words, she embraces the spirit world, the resilience of her foremothers, the integral healing powers of disassociation as a survival mechanism, and the richness of her mitewin - dreams, which reconnects her to herself. Through her poetry, she has found the courage to face her difficult past, and now as a mother, she is gathering the truths of her family to help in the healing process.
