Description

The Neyhiyawak (Plains Cree) word “Kitotam” translates into English as, "He Speaks to It." This is a collection of free-verse poetry by Indigenous poet and artist John McDonald, a sixth-generation direct descendant of Chief Mistawasis of the Plains Cree. Written in two parts, Kitotam poems chronicle John’s life and experiences as an urban Indigenous youth during the 1980s. The second half of the book is a look into the inspirations and events, that shaped John’s career as an internationally known spoken word artist, beat poet, monologist and performance artist.
