CELEBRATING ABORIGINAL HISTORY MONTH 2011: ANISHNAWBE POET JOANNA SHAWANA READS HER POETRY

Meeting Joanna Shawana was a pleasure.  

We drank coffee, chatted, took some photos and hit the park to do a recording of her reading her poems.  

Shawana wrote  a poem on the spot and then read it for blackcoffeepoet.com; a first for the magazine!  

Enjoy Joanna Shawana’s poetry.

Tune in to Black Coffee Poet Monday June 13, 2011 for a review of “She Is Reading Her Blanket With Her Hands” by Two-Spirit Metis poet Sharon Proulx-Turner.
