"Mama of Dada"
Sheri-D Wilson is a Spoken Word Artist and Surrealist Poet known as the "Mama of Dada." Along with 9 collections of poetry, she has 2 Spoken Word CDs (arranged by Russell Broom), and 4 award-winning Video-Poems.
This evocative book binds the ancient past with the distant future – by reclaiming the present. It is a recitation and a prayer of reconciliation, whether expressed in radical chant filled with the optimism of healing or in the Celtic lament of a cunning passage-play.
Listen to this dynamic conversation between Shelagh and Sheri-D as it was heard on CBC's "The Next Chapter" in May of 2013.
Anita Crowshoe and Sheri-D Wilson worked together to create this legacy project. Elders: Dr. Reg Crowshoe, Tom Heavenfire, Sykes Powderface, Clarence (Agar) Wolfleg Sr. - told traditional aboriginal stories to high school students, who in turn responded with poetry and drawings. The jouney is told in this chapbook.
