About the Author

Carrie Ayaġaduk Ojanen is an Inupiat writer from the Ugiuvamiut tribe. Her work has appeared in Prairie Schooner, the Louisville Review, As/Us Journal, and Yellow Medicine Review.

Reviews

"The works underscore the reality that the events of the past are both immutable and removed, but equally irresistable to consideration. It is a profound sentiment but also a tough one. . . . There are poems that present the anguish her elders felt to be separated from not only their home, but their customs. They capture the cultural changes that were endured, the scraps of identity that were salvaged in the transition and brief moments of reclamation."-- "Juneau Empire"
"Ojanen . . . evokes life on Alaska's western shore. Physically difficult work, subsistence, traditional culture, death and renewal. And she offers some memorable descriptions of nature."-- "Daily News-Miner"
