Issue 44.4 Teaser: MISÂSKWATÔMINISKÂHK

Kayla MacInnis

there is a place

 

with fields of northern wheat

needle-and-thread

& mixed-grass prairie

 

full of saskatoon berries

sage-smoke & yarrow

wild columbine & aster

 

where the trees grow crooked

by swift-flowing rivers

& grassy hills where buffalo used to jump

 

where grandpa & dad live

with skin like desert sunsets

& humour as dark as their morning coffee

 

nîkihk (my home)

 

a place

where many bridges connect the land

the land of the living skies

Kayla MacInnis is a Métis storyteller born in the prairies but raised by the sea. Through sharing stories that mix visual arts and the written word, Kayla hopes to inspire people to find different ways to connect with themselves and one another.
