In Quest of Road Kill
A creative nonfiction piece I wrote in J-School on the Mi’kmaq artform; porcupine quill work. In the beginnings of learning this craft, I needed to acquire the coveted quills. Where better to acquire than the side of the road.
This piece will also be included in the Mi’kmaq section of an Anthology dedicated to Aboriginals sharing borders, called “Dawnland Voices” which will be hitting shelves at the end of 2014.
Hope you enjoy.
