The poems in "mamitonehta kisewatisiwin," a Cree translation of "Imagine Mercy," portray mixed bloods, resistance, determination, sovereignty, and cultural issues that generate sharply divided opinions and deep emotional struggles. David Groulx's poetic power renders an honest and painful perception of modern-day Indigenous life with strong voice against prejudice and injustice. Remarkable in its candour and gracefully constructed, this collection of poems binds us to the present and, at the same time, connects us to the voices of the past.
