This essay collection gathers together writings on the works of Maria Campbell, feminist, activist, visionary, artist, mother, grandmother, and Métis elder. The book talks truthfully of Maria's journey as a writer, how her writing was infected with her experiences with marginalization and discrimination. And how she emerged on the other side having affirmed her identity.

Maria Campbell was born in April of 1940 near Park Valley Saskatchewan, on Crown land, often referred to by locals as a road allowance community. She is the oldest of 8 children. Much of her early years are revealed in Halfbreed, the book which would ultimately ensure that Campbell’s life would take a path as a writer, an artist, a community worker and social rights advocate. As a result of Campbell’s tireless work, she has received four honorary doctorates, the Order of Canada, is a Trudeau Mentor, and has received numerous awards for her contribution to Métis and Aboriginal people’s and women’s rights in Canada, and for her efforts to preserve traditional knowledge, as well as promote the practice of indigenous knowledge. In addition to writing, Campbell has produced plays, film, television and radio shows, all dedicated to promoting Métis and Aboriginal culture.
