Description

News: Postcards from the Four Directions is an anthology of Ojibwe playwright Drew Hayden Taylor's 2010 work containing 90 essays, columns, editorials, and reflections on Aboriginal peoples in Canada. All offerings contain the writer's trademark satirical twist and are organized into the four cardinal directions: North for contemplation and wisdom; South for journeys both physical and spiritual; East for beginnings and youth; and West for maturity and responsibility. Topics include Ipperwash, powwows, language, Aboriginal theatre; art, globalization, postmodernism, food, museums, Indian time, identity, international travel, commerce, stereotypes, appropriation, and truth and reconciliation. The pieces offer food for thought contain under the light coating of humour. Recommended.
