CK-Centre for Kinesiology – Congress Hub – Booth #10
Please join us in celebrating the launch of Carol Rose Daniel's new poetry book, Hiraeth. Hiraeth is about women supporting and lending strength and clarity to other women so they know that moving forward is always possible — and always necessary. The book documents a journey of struggle that pertains to a dark point in Canadian history that few talk about. Poems speak to the 1960's "scoop up" of children and how this affected the lives of (one or thousands) of First Nations and Métis girls — girls who later grew to be women with questions, women with wounds, women who felt like they had no place to call home. That is, until they allowed themselves to be open to the courage others have lived and shared. "Hiraeth" is a word that is Celtic in origin and means looking for a place to belong that never existed. But this place does exist — in the heart.
This event is being hosted by Inanna Publications.
