Powerful

Beautiful poem, Katherine Vermette. Thank you. My aunt by marriage was a Dumont, from Duck Lake, Saskatchewan, great niece (I was told) of Gabriel. I thought of her (and my cousins) when I studied Canadian history in university — read “Many Tender Ties” — and wept as I wondered why we didn’t learn this sooner. Your poem captures so much and I will share it with my granddaughters as I tell them the stories. Thank you.
