Overview

A documentary poem that lays bare the black presence in the northwest, it is also about fathers and sons, now and then. Born in the 1780's Bonga was the son of freed slaves who worked for J. Sayer & Co. in 1795 at Fond du Lac. He was employed by the North West Co., the South West Co. & the American Fur Co. in their Fond du Lac Departments. Using images and text from documentary sources including the Hudson's Bay Company Archive Bailey has constructed an important, innovative and exciting book.
