Kwe: Standing With Our Sisters (edited by my favourite, Joseph Boyden) brings together the voices of many, rising up against injustice against Native Women in Canada. It collects essays, fiction, and poetry into a collection that I’m just bursting with anticipation to read. It’s been hanging out on my TBR for a few months now only because it was first released as an ebook and I want nothing more than for a paperback to be released.
This cover for me is just visually stunning. It’s incredibly moving and it says so much, especially in conjunction with the topics discussed within the pages. Having studying Native Canadian literature, attended pow wows throughout my childhood, and having a significant interest in Native Canadian literature in general, this cover really speaks to me. It captures the essence of everything that I’ve read or experienced. I think it’s absolutely beautiful.
Have you read Kwe? What did you think? How do you think the cover represents the content within?
