Our Winter issue exploring the theme of Indigenous Leadership is now on stands.

The issue features a beautiful cover by Marcus Gosse, and art from Jason Sikoak, Heather Campbell, Monika Rumbolt, and Ryan Winters.

Our features include a story about the “Daughters of Mikak” project, celebrating Inuit women’s leadership in Nunatsiavut, a pair of stories about life on Fogo Island, past and present, and an exploration of the excavation of Calvert by Robyn S. Lacey, a recent graduate of the archaeology program at Memorial University.

There is also poetry by Shannon Webb-Campbell and Jan Morrison, and book reviews of new work by both Mary Walsh and Wayne Johnston.

Paying Ode to Funambulists

“Do you remember everything I’ve told you?” I ask my fiancé for the millionth time. We are in the lobby of a Quality Inn near Pearson International. Four floors up, my parents await to meet their daughter and future son-in-law. This is the first time my Indian and Canadian realms will come face to face.
