TURTLE ISLAND at the Moonspeaker

'Turtle Island' is an english translation of one of the many Indigenous names for the continent currently labelled 'North America' in most atlases. Being a Métis writer I've found myself with opportunities to write short pieces on Indigenous history, culture, and interests. In effect, they're little polaroid snapshots of what I knew and thought about the issue at the time it was written, which is why they are listed under the heading 'Contested Documents' – chances are they'll all need some sort of follow up at one time or another. 'Living Memory' is a bit different, in that it presents some of my research on Métis history in North America. It's memory and living because, the pieces there are present works in progress.
