"Calling Down the Sky" is a poetry collection that describes deep personal experiences and post generational effects of the Canadian Aboriginal Residential School confinements in the 1950's when thousands of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children were placed in these schools against their parents' wishes. Many were forbidden to speak their language and practice their own culture. The author portrays how the ongoing impact of the residential schools problem has been felt throughout generations and has contributed to social problems that continue to exist today.

Rosanna Deerchild is the host of "Unreserved" on CBC Radio One. She is an award-winning Cree author and has worked for a variety of Indigenous newspapers and for major networks for almost 15 years, including APTN, CBC Radio and Global. She lives in South Indian Lake, Manitoba.
