Author: Natasha Kanape Fontaine

Natasha Kanapé Fontaine, born in 1991, is a slam poet, visual artist and environmental activist. Innu of Pessamit community of the North Shore, she spent most of her life in urban areas, as did many other Aboriginal youth of her generation. Noticed first in Rimouski where she was studying, and at events in Montreal in spring 2012, Natasha Kanapé Fontaine is prominent on the provincial slam scene—she's been dubbed the territorial slammer. The original French title, from which this current title is translated into English, earned her the prize for poetry of the Society of Francophone Writers of America, 2013. She figures on Radio-Canada's Plus on est de fou, plus on lit! list of ten young writers to watch. With an enduring commitment to the Idle No More movement, Natasha Kanapé Fontaine is part of the new generation of a people rising from the ashes, and who intends to take the place she deserves. She lives in Montreal.
