ANCIENT SPIRIT RISING BY PEGI EYERS
Pegi Eyers is to be commended for her deeply thoughtful, intelligent, inspiring and passionate compendium text Ancient Spirit Rising. The knowledge, spirit, and generosity of this book is of priceless value. It is an honest testimony of the past and a vision into the future. Ancient Spirit Rising can be experienced slowly one chapter at a time, and the book concludes in poem prayer (poesis - to make, to create) to begin again. Ancient Spirit Rising awakens us, and it is an essential, important, and healing experience to be taken into hand, heart and mind, again and again.

May 27, 2016 "as Anishinaabe audience member in a Poetry Community (that truly works at doing/being better)" by waaseyaa'sin Christine Sy >ANISHINABEWIZIWIN< On the issue of white performance artists or creatives in any space laying claim to "their Elders" and Indigenous forms of expression in some cases denied to First Nations themselves. From the blog: “European Indigenous Knowledges” is a term coined by Pegi Eyers in her book Ancient Spirits Rising. I hyperlinked to this book because the phenomenon of appropriating Indigenous knowledges (and other awful things) needs to stop, and Eyers makes a significant and impressive effort toward supporting this end. I’ve included what I wrote about Eyers’ book for those who would like more insight, from one Indigenous perspective.
