xxx ndn: love & lust in ndn country
 & between the red covers, many more!


"The inspiration behind xxx ndn comes from a recent but powerful tradition in contemporary Canadian Indigenous Literature where authors have taken sexuality to task and reclaimed their sovereign right to get their freak on.

"Traditionally we are a bawdy people, our oral stories are full of the expressions of lovemaking, and all that is funny and beautiful about it. These ideas, like much of our culture, are now being emancipated.

"And political action has never be so much fun!"
~ editor, Katherena Vermette, CBC Manitoba

This is a wholly enjoyable collection of writings, exploring the range of love & lust & libidinal relations: 
highly recommended! 

xxx ndn available through

People's Co-op Books ~ Vancouver
 Collected Works ~  Ottawa
