Welcome to Manitoba! Writer/Storyteller-in-Residence at the Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture

IMG_2120     Folks have asked me to keep in touch here on my website about my next three months in Winnipeg at the University of Manitoba; so here’s the “beginning” of that story.

Must say I appreciated the welcome at Canadian Border Control/Immigration….The Bear, mandatory flag of maple leaf, The BEAR, portrait of QEII, and THE BEAR!!  As I was waiting to get my work permit, I refrained from “selfie” with Bear, but take it as a mighty “sign”…We’ll See….

Week One has been documentation and orientation and acclimation, all eased by generous hospitality of Centre Staff and January “thaw” in the 20s—and that’s Fahrenheit!  Grateful, honored and excited to be here and will try to keep posting as the whole journey unfolds….mitakuye oyasin…

I love language...as a storyteller and author...as a human being...as an indigenous woman of the First Nations of what is now called North America. We have always celebrated those who love words and string them into stories for the good of the people, for the good of the land, to honor those who came before us and to honor our relationships with all who live together on this land (or in the sea...or in the sky...)
