Poetry to reflect on resilience and resistance

The women’s meditative poetry group felt that the close of Indigenous People’s month and the start of a new month–with ongoing issues–would be a good time to select a woman poet who writes from an indigenous perspective.
At 9am Pacific on Saturday and Sunday, we’ll continue to meet over zoom at ucv.im/cuuwa
The featured poet is Rita Bouvier.  https://www.thistledownpress.com/html/search/Authors/Rita_Bouvier/index.cfm
Her poetry collections are at vpl.ca.  As well, several poems are available on line.
There are several places on youtube we can hear her read her own poems.
