From acclaimed filmmaker, artist and activist Marjorie Beaucage comes a poetic memoir that reflects on seven decades of living and seeking justice as a Two Spirit Michif woman. Poems, poetic observations and thoughtful meanderings comprise this inspirational journal-memoir-poetry collection from a woman who has dedicated her life and her talent to creating social change. Unfolding the wisdom gained from experience, leave some for the birds: movements for justice offers guidance for younger activists following the author's trailblazing footsteps.

Marjorie Beaucage is a proud Métis Two Spirit Filmmaker, cultural worker, and community based video activist. Her work as a community based independent artist, seeks to question, empower, and change the ways we look at ourselves...seeing from the inside out. Marjorie was a cofounder of the Aboriginal Film and Video Art Alliance. As a 'Runner' she worked as a cultural Ambassador to negotiate self governing partnerships and alliances with the Banff Centre for the Arts, V-tape, the Canada Council for the Arts which resulted in the development of Aboriginal Arts programs. She also programmed the first Aboriginal Film Festival in Toronto in 1992 .

"I have long admired Margie's tenacious ability to persevere in spite of the obstacles placed in front of her. She continues to challenge the status quo and hangs onto what is right and just. She awakens, supports and lifts the many voices who struggle to be heard. Her voice dives deep into the depth of unknown and bewildering waters. Yet, she bubbles to the surface, takes a breath and howls with a universal plea to pay attention to the injuries imposed on the land and its people. I am honored to walk with her."
--Louise B. Halfe - Sky Dancer, author of The Crooked Good.
