Indigenous Poetry

Indigenous Authors in the Spotlight Series

Our Winter 2019 Indigenous authors spotlight, timed to help celebrate First Voices Week at Concordia, shines on poets. The list features contemporary works, including Griffin Poetry Prize winners for 2017 and 2018, older favourites and more contentious choices, long form poems and anthologies; the poetry covers topics such as representation, revolution, racism, and love.

Thank you to Donna Langille for her valuable assistance in putting together this carousel.
