Description

Childhood Thoughts and Water by John McDonald, a sixth-generation direct descendant of Nehiyawak Chief Mistawasis and resident on Treaty Six Territory in Northern Saskatchewan, is a collection of beat poetry, spoken word, performance art and lyrical verse. This is a work which journeys into the memories and events of an urban Indigenous warrior's struggles to reconnect with a language and culture that is seemingly always almost out of reach. The common theme of reconnecting with nature and with water is interspersed with the imagery of childhood recollections and anecdotes about life and love, aspirations and defeats, and the desire to achieve greatness in spite of the obstacles and barriers inherent in a life lived on the fringes, in the shadows and on the streets, in the spotlight and behind the backstage curtain.
