Carol Rose GoldenEagle

The cover for Carol Rose GoldenEagle's poetry book Stations of the Crossed, which features a colourful painting in a square in the middle of a blue background.

When Carol Rose GoldenEagle was a child, attending Easter church services, she recalls the annual ritual of the priest presenting plaques depicting the stages of Christ's persecution to his resurrection, referred to as the "stations of the cross." Using these early teachings as a springboard for critical reflections, her poems look back — but more importantly, look forward to reclaiming the gifts given by Creator within Indigenous culture.

GoldenEagle's searing new poetry collection examines the dark legacy of the residential school system, church and government doctrine, and the ongoing impacts on Indigenous peoples' lives across Turtle Island. (From Inanna Publications)
