Poetry. Native American Studies. Throughout their youth, Columpa Bobb and Tania Carter wrote poetry with their mother, award-winning author Lee Maracle. The three always dreamed that one day they would write a book together. This book is the result of that dream. The wide-ranging poems in HOPE MATTERS focus on the journey of Indigenous peoples from colonial beginnings to reconciliation. But they also document a very personal journey--that of a mother and her two daughters.
