Covering Indigenous adventures from Ontario?s Walpole Island to Northern Saskatchewan to the BC coast, #IndianLovePoems is a poetry collection that delves into the humour and truths of love and lust within Indigenous communities. Sharing stories in search of The One, or even better, the One-Night-Stand, or the opening of boundaries this collection fearlessly sheds light on the sharing and honesty that comes with discussions of men, women, sex, and relationships, using humour to explore the complexities of race, culture and intent within relationships.

“Are there sad or troubling or troublingly charged aspects of an honest book about sex, how one person (a very specific person, with an identity of interest) does it and imagines it and describes it? Yes, which is why [#IndianLovePoems] is good, because it is honest and unafraid; there is also its tactility, its debauchery, its wistfulness, and its sense of humour to recommend it.” — Andrew Dubois, University of Toronto Quarterly
