One of Canada’s most important voices profiled on The Next Chapter.
“We have a saying: ‘Words have power. They have impact. Breath is wind, wind is voice and voice is power.’ [Writing] made me a very powerful person in myself, inside myself. But it also influenced a new direction for Canada. I’m not the only one, though. Native writers generally have influenced Canadians to start building the bridge toward us and some of the new Canadian attitude is to make sure the street crosses both ways, instead of constantly pillaging Native lands and Native territory and not giving something back and seeing us as parasites.
