In The Veins Edited by Patricia Busbee

Part of this book’s proceeds will support Standing Rock Water Protectors and #NoDAPL.

Twenty-eight poets from across Turtle Island contributed, including First Nations poet David Groulx (Anishinabe Elliott Lake); Assiniboine playwright William Yellow Robe; Ojibwe scholar Dr. Carol A. Hand, who wrote an introduction; notable author-poet MariJo Moore (Cherokee); and many more.

“These poets come to us from across Turtle Island. Some are very well-known, even famous, and many will be in the future,” Busbee said. “Their poetry offers exquisite interpretation of life and story, personal perceptions, and their views on issues of historical trauma, land-taking, loss of identity and culture, and child theft/adoption projects in the name of Manifest Destiny in North America.”

This highly-anticipated collection is part of a history-making book series Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects. This series includes TWO WORLDS (Vol. 1), CALLED HOME: The Road Map (Vol. 2), and STOLEN GENERATIONS: Survivors of the Indian Adoption Projects and 60s Scoop (Vol. 3). All books were published by the Blue Hand Books, a collective of Native American authors.
