Earlier this year, the book was awarded the Perugia Press Prize. “Through a Red Place”, a story-in-poems that assembles her research into her Native and non-Native heritage in the land now known as Wisconsin.
“Through the poets’ ancestors – and documented through text and image – this book relates narratives of people who converged on and impacted this space in myriad ways. Written in English and Mohegan, “Through a Red Place” reshapes itself from page to page, asking what it means to navigate place as both colonizer and colonized. It builds a map between distances and lost stories to unearth and honor the past.”
