"I believe she is one of the best up-and-coming younger writers in North America and I am always watching to see what she is doing.”

Joy Harjo, 1999
Kateri is an Anishnaabe writer of mixed ancestry from the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation.
She lives and works at Neyaashiinigmiing, Cape Croker Reserve on the Saugeen Peninsula in southwestern Ontario.

Her writing has been published in various anthologies, journals, and magazines in Canada, the U.S., Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia, and Germany and in the collection my heart is a stray bullet.

Currently, she is completed work on a CD of spoken word poetry and music; a collection of poetry; a collection of short stories; an anthology of erotica by Indigenous writers; and various multidisciplinary and publishing projects.
She is the founder and managing editor of Kegedonce Press.



"Her writing strikes me as a blend of things in a new way. It deals with the elemental, dreams and memories, but her portrayal of these things haunt you, they speak to you. She has attached herself to the vision sense of poetry. It makes her poetry powerfully mysterious," says Johnson. (Gordon Johnson is a Professor in the English Department at Trent University in Ontario.) "Akiwenzie-Damm's poems are filled with anguish, fear and confusion..." Brenda Payne in "Voices of Hope," Canadian Literature: A Quarterly of Criticism and Reviews.
