FEEDING OUR FIRES: NORTHERN INDIGENOUS VOICES ON LAND AND LIFE
Led by editors Kyla LeSage, Thumlee Drybones-Foliot and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, this book project will be hitting the shelves across Canada as part of ARP Book’s Spring 2022 catalogue. The project began during the pandemic with a series of writing workshops with Leanne for northern Indigenous emerging writers. Kyla and Thumlee reached out to northern Indigenous writers through an open call for submission on social media. Leanne did a series of interviews with artists and musicians including Jeneen Frei Njootli, Inuksuk McKay, Tiffany Ayalik, Elisapie, Asinnajaq and Beatrice Deer. The book is a beautiful collection of writing from emerging and established writers including Leela Gilday, Katłįà Lafferty, Táncháy Redvers, Chloe Dragon Smith, Dian Million, Tanya Lukin Linklater, Angela Code, Siku Allooloo, Lianne Charlie, Kristen Tanche, Jennie Vandermeer, Antionne Mountain, Brenda Dragon and many, many more!
