Translated from French by Howard Scott. Assi Manifesto is a celebration of the Innu land in the tradition of Joséphine Bacon. This telluric power is reminiscent of Paul Chamberland?s Terre Québec. Natasha Kanapé?s challenge is to name her land, but also to reconcile opposites. In this collection of poetry, the author engages with the environment, colonialism, anxiety, anger, healing, solitude, and love. "Assi" in Innu means Land. Assi Manifesto is primarily a land of women. If the manifesto is a public space, Assi is a forum of life, a song for those who open their spirit to its mystery.

Born in 1991 in Baie-Comeau, Natasha Kanapé Fontaine is Pessamit Innu. She lives in Montreal. Poet, slammer, painter and comedian, her first book, N?entre pas dans mon âme avec tes chaussures (Do Not Enter My Soul in Your Shoes) was published by Mémoire d?encrier in 2012 in French, and by Mawenzi House in 2015 in English.

"Fontaine?s profound, complex poetics combined with her cultural perspective make Assi Manifesto a timely and timeless collection." --World Literature Today
