This work is a duet of poet and painter. David Bouchard and Allan Sapp blend sound and image to teach and to share the sotry of the pow-wow and its meaning. I have often wondered what the singers were saying and this book provides an answer. This is a proud and defiant work. If gives an affirmation to the cultural expression and practices of the Plains Cree peoples. Thematically it ties to: pow wow, cultural traditions, First Nations, families, relationship.
