Treaty 6 Deixis

By Christine Stewart

About the Book

In Treaty 6 Deixis, Christine Stewart investigates what it means to be in Edmonton, on Treaty Six territory, "in this city, on this land, in this country, on this planet, in a way that acknowledges and honours all my obligations and all my relations, the complex web of connective tissues that keep me here. "Her work considers the ways in which language can be formally and contextually engaged to reconsider and potentially re-articulate the world. How might certain poetic practices undermine racist ideologies and colonialism, engendering ecological attentiveness, anomalous, and compassionate communities?
