Rebecca Pelky- Brothertown Indian Nation member releases her latest book
Rebecca Pelky a Clarkson Professor (and Brothertown Indian Nation member) released her latest Prize-Winning Book.
Earlier this year, the book was awarded the Perugia Press Prize. "Through a Red Place" is a story-in-poems that assembles her research into her Native and non-Native heritage in the land now known as Wisconsin.
Through the poet’s 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.
