About the Author

Tawahum Bige is a Lutselk'e Dene, Plains Cree poet who resides on unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territory (Vancouver). Their Scorpio-moon-ass poems expose growth, resistance and persistence as a hopeless Two Spirit Nonbinary sadboy on occupied Turtle Island. With a B.A. in creative writing from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Bige has performed at countless festivals and had poems featured in numerous publications. His land protection work against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion led him to face incarceration in 2020. Cut to Fortress is Bige's debut poetry collection. Find him online @Tawahum on Instagram, Twitter and more.

Reviews

The reinforcement of knowing the interconnectedness of all things--including the grime of (Vancouver) city and endangered forest beauty found within these lean staccato poems--ring with a desperate voice of "youth" who want to remain part of it all. Inspiration too, enacted in the listening and learning from those who have journeyed here before. Is this activism poetry, or reflections of a soul memory rife with humanity and new/old teachings of the way it could and can be?--Janet Rogers
