nipê wânîn: my way back is a poetic journey of one woman discovering her Cree heritage and how it has shaped her. Moving between English and Cree, the poems create a kind of cultural dialogue, on facing pages, that invests heavily in the close relationship she had with her grandmother and the teachings that were offered to her.
