Summary "A celebration of the Innu land in the tradition of Joséphine Bacon. This telluric power is reminiscent of Paul Chamberland's Terre Québec. Natasha Kanapés challenge is to name her land, but also to reconcile opposites. In this collection of poetry, the author engages with the environment, colonialism, anxiety, anger, healing, solitude, and love. "Assi" in Innu means Land. ASSI MANIFESTO is primarily a land of women. If the manifesto is a public space, Assi is a forum of life, a song for those who open their spirit to its mystery."--Cover
