Description

Kuessipan (“to you” in the Innu language) is an extraordinary, meditative novel about life among the Native Innu people in the wilds of the Canadian North. With grace and perfect pitch, Naomi Fontaine conjures up a world that reads like no other, and a community?of nomadic hunters and fishers, of mothers and children?that endures a harsh, sometimes cruel reality with quiet dignity.

Naomi Fontaine is a member of the Innu First Nation. Kuessipan, her first novel, is based on her own experience.
