Jas M. Morgan's N TIS NAK honours blood and chosen kin with equal care. A groundbreaking memoir spanning nations, prairie punk scenes, and queer love stories, it is woven around grief over the loss of their mother. It also explores despair and healing through community and family, and being torn apart by the same. Using cyclical narrative techniques and drawing on Nixon's Cree, Saulteaux, and M tis ancestral teachings, this work offers a compelling perspective on the connections that must be broken and the ones that heal.
