AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Charmaine Papertalk-Green’s poetry is intense and direct. She says what she means and is willing to take on issues that affect her community from outside and from within. She writes of Indigenous loss, but also about tensions and conflicts among her own people. For Papertalk-Green, culture isn’t in the past, it’s all around in the here and now.'
