Re-Matriation, Chapbook Series of Indigenous Poetry #3. From the Introduction- " I think that never have I read work by an indigenous writer in which so much is said about the beauty of Earth filtered through palimpsest-images of city, ghost streets, train tracks, and litter forced upon Turtle Island and our planet altogether. It is beauty conveyed through loss. I literally hurt when I read Monty's poetry. Yet, as I state in my blurb, Monty's poems have led me to understand something about love which I never understood before. When you read this book, I trust you will get why I cannot paraphrase any poems herein; doing so would strip the tropes, deep song, and enfolding spaces of their haunting realness, evocations and dreamscapes (if not nightmare-scapes). It would do dishonor to that love." - Susan Deer Cloud
