Description

Written by Kelsey Borgford, a Nbisiing Nishnaabekwe from the Marten clan, and Cole Forrest an Ojibwe filmmaker and programmer from Nipissing First Nation. Illustrated by: Tessa Pizzale, a Moose Cree Indigenous Artist located in North Bay, Ontario.

Ceremony, community and connection - the poems of Once the Smudge is Lit carry the reader into deeply spiritual elements of Nishnaabe/Ojibwe culture. Co-written by Cole Forrest and Kelsey Borgford, the poetry of Once the Smudge is Lit highlights the Indigenous experience in post-colonial times through explorations of themes ranging from love to community. Bogford's and Forrest's verses seek to open a multidimensional window into the experience of being a contemporary Nishaabe. A profound sense of movement, connection, and continuity is emphasized by Tessa Pizzale's beautifully evocative illustrations, which include a line of smudge smoke that flows from page to page from beginning to end.

 This book contains 50 illustrations.
