Annharte’s forthcoming Miskwagoode (New Star $16) is about her mother loss, or her “mothermiss.” This fifth poetry collection by Annharte (Marie Baker) is also about all the women “buried in common enough / cross-generational graves.” The title is a term taken from the Anishinaabe language for “woman wearing red.” Described by her publisher as an unsettling portrayal of unreconciled Indigenous experience under colonialism, past and present, Miskwagoode has a cover illustration by Annharte’s grandchild, Madeline Terbasket, and introductions by her son Forrest and her granddaughter Soffia Funmaker. Although Annharte lives as an elder in Gypsumville, Manitoba, six of her seven books have been published in British Columbia. 9781554201846
