carol and hiraeth

Carol Rose Daniels, author of Hiraeth, is a featured writer at Word on the Street Saskatoon in the Great Expectations tent.

Carol Rose Daniels is Cree/Dene with roots in Sandy Bay, northern Saskatchewan. She is a published novelist, poet, playwright, visual artist, and musician. She is the author of the award-winning novel Bearskin Diary (2015). A second novel, Narrows of Fear, is forthcoming in 2018. As a visual artist, her work has been exhibited in art galleries across Saskatchewan and Northern Canada. As a musician, a CD of women’s drum songs, in which Carol is featured, was recently nominated for a Prairie Music Award. Before pursuing her art on a full-time basis, Carol worked as a journalist for more than 30 years in television and radio at APTN, CTV, and CBC. She lives in Regina.

“Hiraeth offers a generous, genuine, heartbreaking gift. Loving, defiant, dark, and triumphant, Carol Rose Daniels sings our homesick spirits out of harm’s way. This collection is for all of us, but most especially for those taken, those found, and those still searching. Our nations need this book now more than ever. kinanaskomitin.”

—Lisa Bird-Wilson, author of the award-winning Just Pretending

“Ripped from her culture as a child, Carol is haunted by the call of the drum. Full of heart and hard-won wisdom, these poems are a cry for a home that never was. Raised monias in an in-between world, Carol Rose Daniels comes to embrace her Nehiyaw roots.”

—Lorri Neilsen Glenn, author of Following the River: Traces of Red River Women
