- Author Bio
In this Ojibwa translation of "Rising with a Distant Dawn" by David Groulx, the author and the translator present a powerful and moving poetry collection which stretches across the boundaries of skin colour, language, and religion to give voice to the lives and experiences of ordinary Aboriginal Canadians. The poems embrace anguish, pride, and hope. They come from the woodlands and the plains, they speak of love, of war, and of the known and the mysterious, they strike with wisdom, joy, and sadness, bringing us closer than ever before to the heart of urban Aboriginal life.
The poetry in "Rising with a Distant Dawn" gives an Aboriginal perspective on a state of C anada, modern society, and the injustice to Aboriginal people. -- ABORIGINAL PEOPLES TELEVISION NETWORK
