Description

"Yemít and Merímstn" is an autobiographical collection of short stories that reflects own experiences of the author as an Indigenous girl and woman who works continuously to transform and achieve resurgence through traditional sports, personal healing, education, and in particular, cultural and traditional practices and teachings. In this book, Nicola Campbell creatively weaves elements of land, water, language, identity, resistance, and understanding throughout her work as a powerful effort to illustrate rootedness as a decolonizing practice. "Yemít and Merímstn" is a striking and compelling work that addresses trauma and suicidal feelings, family and complex relationships, and healing and transformation, showing a process of reweaving the strands that can save life and help others to move toward a better future.
