Poetry Reading with Michelle Sylliboy


Mi’kmaq (L’nu) author and artist, Michelle Sylliboy, blends her modern poetry, photography, and Mi’kmaq (L’nuk) hieroglyphic poetry in this unprecedented book. For over 13 thousand years, the Mi’kmaq (L’nuk) people maintained a complex language system. Hieroglyphics (Komqwejwi’kasikl) symbols dominated the landscape of the seven districts of the L’nuk Nation prior to colonization. After the reading, Michelle will discuss her doctorate work in revitalizing the L’nuk ancient hieroglyphic (Komqwejwi’kasikl) language.
