Description

Lindsay Nixon’s nîtisânak honours blood and chosen kin with equal care. A groundbreaking memoir spanning nations, prairie punk scenes, and queer love stories, it is woven around grief over the loss of their mother. It also explores despair and healing through community and family, and being torn apart by the same. Using cyclical narrative techniques and drawing on their Cree, Saulteaux, and Métis ancestral teachings, this work offers a compelling perspective on the connections that must be broken and the ones that heal.

Winner of the 2019 Writers’ Trust of Canada Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers; 31st Annual Lambda Literary Awards Finalist for Lesbian Biography/Memoir; Finalist for the 2019 Indigenous Voices Award for Published Prose.
