Book - 2011
Rate this:

Song of Rita Joe is a book of exceptional courage and insight, the words of a gentle woman who fought for her family, justice, and her own independent voice. She faced intolerance, ignorance, and abuse, searched her inheritance for strength, and wrote poems of clarity and encouragement that continue to inspire not only her people but all people.

Finally, she was a humble woman, an honoured Mi'Kmaw elder, poet, and member of the Order of Canada.
