Description

Unearthing Secrets Gathering Truths is the first book of poetry by Jules Arita Koostachin, Attawapiskat First Nation member. This work is divided into four parts: InNiNeWak (Human Beings), WiKwam (Home), MiTeWin (Dreams) and IsKweWak (Cree Womyn). The poems reflect life, voice, spirit world, mothers, freedom, truth and love seen through the eyes of an Indigenous woman. Through the process of the poems, which were a twenty-year journey, she finds the courage to face her difficult past and gathers truths of her family to heal. This collection is a FNCR 2019 book of poems and was nominated for the 2nd Annual Indigenous Voices Award in the Published Poetry in English category.
