About the Author

Lisa Boivin is a member of the Deninu Kue First Nation. An interdisciplinary artist and a PhD student at the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Lisa uses digital images as a pedagogical strategy to bridge gaps between medical ethics and aspects of Indigenous cultures and worldviews. She is currently working on an arts-based thesis that utilizes Indigenous ways of knowing to address the colonial barriers that Indigenous patients navigate in the current healthcare system.


While this farewell journey is personal and specific, it holds universal wisdom for those coming to terms with loss. Attractive and compact, this memorable book guides mourners to a place of acceptance and serenity.--Jill Bryant "Quill & Quire" (1/20/2020 12:00:00 AM)
Boivin, a member of Canada's Deninu Kue First Nation, offers a fresh understanding of death and grief, which she portrays not as a breach in the natural order of things, but as an integral part of them: "You have left us, but you are also here now."--Jill Bryant "Publisher's Weekly" (1/20/2020 12:00:00 AM)
