BCP HONOURS INDIGENOUS SOVEREIGNTY WEEK 2010 WITH CREE POET CANDACE BRUNETTE READING HER POETRY

This is the last post on Black Coffee Poet dedicated to Indigenous Sovereignty Week 2010.  We started by featuring Marilyn Dumont, a very strong female poet, who shared her wisdom via text and interview.  We are now ending our week with another strong female Aboriginal poet in Candace Brunette.

I first met Canadace Brunette at First Nations House University of Toronto in 2005.  She taught a free Yoga class for students. Canadace was always friendly, kind and understanding.  You could see she took her spirituality seriously and practiced it via giving of herself in different ways.  

Candace and I built a strong friendship that is still strong today.  Lots of sharing, caring, and laughter.  You can hear it in her poetry.  

Enojy!
