Nakoda Sky People

From the back cover:

“Minerva Allen is one of Montana’s finest treasures, and her poetry reverberates across the Great Plains.  She has paid great attention to the stories of her ancestors, observed and recorded both the everyday and extraordinary facets of what it means to be a Nakoda woman and a human being.  We should all be grateful for this, and for her enduring voice that emerged from a time when tribal languages, ways of life, and belief systems were deliberately and actively being extinguished.  Allen’s poems are an act of resistance, a symbol of survival and an exquisite revelation.”
