Sitting By The Rapids is a slim volume of engaging poetry by Albert Dumont. He is Spiritual Advisor, Algonquin, Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg and since 2016 he has served his community as one of 13 Elders on the Elders Advisory Committee of the Ministry of the Attorney General.  In recognition for his work as an activist and volunteer on his ancestral lands (Ottawa and Region) Albert was presented with a Human Rights Award by the Public Service Alliance of Canada in 2010. Albert has dedicated his life to promoting Aboriginal spirituality and healing and to protecting the rights of Aboriginal Peoples particularly those as they affect the young. The poems are organized around themes such as healing, spirituality, bloodline, seasons and trees. His moving poems talk about pain, home, living in the city, healing, the role of men, the importance of women, and the changing seasons. Knowing Albert’s personal story and his private healing journey makes this book a vital piece of literature that can engage youth, the general reader, and post-secondary audiences. Highly recommended
