Description

I'm Finding My Talk by Rebecca Thomas (Mi’kmaw) is a response poem to I Lost My Talk, which is one of Rita Joe's most influential poems and tells this Mi'kmaw Elder's story of losing her Mi’kmaw language while at residential school in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia. The vivid and colour illustrations are by Mi'kmaw artist Pauline Young and compliment the poem beautifully again. In, I'm Finding My Talk, the poem takes the reader back to Shubenacadie to begin the journey of finding words, stories, family, friends and loving relationships, moccasins, regalia, and much more as language is re-learnt and re-spoken. A note about Rebecca Thomas is included. Highly recommended as a poem or read with I Lost My Talk by Rita Joe and illustrated by Pauline Young.
