Dedicated to the Anishnawbekwe

Poem by Lee Maracle dedicated to the Anishnawbekwe (who founded the Barrie Native Friendship Centre).

Words are breath tracks speaking to those who have already left their
on our lives.

These words whisper softly from just behind the footprints of those
first imagined this house.

Because so many of those who imagined this house were women it
quickly became
a reality.
