03-30-21 Book of the Month: “Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies” by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
Native America Calling - The Electronic Talking Circle
In “Noopiming” The Cure for White Ladies,” seven beings within one entity named Mashkawaji help the narrative along through literary prose, dialogue and poetry. Writer Leanne Betasamosake Simpson (Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg) presents a different kind of novel that takes a deep dive into poetic storytelling. It is not meant to fit into a particular genre, but instead serves as an invitation into Nishnaabeg ways of thinking and telling stories. Readers are invited to reflect on the ways the characters relate to the world they are connected to which goes beyond boundaries of typical Western thought. Get ready to expand how you take in story with our March Book of the Month author.
