A Poetic Call to Action (2016)
In memory of Colten Boushie and dedicated to his family.
A Poetic Call to Action was a collaboration piece with two spoken word poets from Saskatoon, eco aborijanelle and Kevin Wesaquate. The poem is both a call to action on Indigenous food sovereignty and an addendum to the list of recommendations put forward by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
