Congratulations to Louise Bernice Halfe - Sky Dancer,
Canada's new Parliamentary Poet Laureate!

 I will not name her.
 Cannot name her.
 She becomes everyone’s

Louise Bernice Halfe's BLUE MARROW, in a beautifully redesigned Third Edition.

 The voices of Blue Marrow sing out from the past and the present. They are the voices of the Grandmothers, both personal   and legendary. They share their wisdom, their lives, their dreams. They proclaim the injustice of colonialism, the violence of proselytism, and the horrors of the residential school system with an honesty that cuts to the marrow. Speaking in both English and Cree, these are voices of hopefulness, strength, and survivance. Blue Marrow is a tribute to the indomitable power of Indigenous women of the past and of the present day.

More than twenty years since its first publication, this critically acclaimed collection is available in a redesigned edition,
including an all-new interview with its celebrated author, Louise Bernice Halfe – Sky Dancer.
