Ndakinna: Our Land

(2003)
New and Selected Poems
A collection of poems by

 
Written over a period of twelve years and published in magazines and anthologies, these beautiful poems of place and Abenaki Indian heritage are addressed to the land, to the poet's two sons James and Jesse, to his wife Carol, and to himself. A few poems invoking the land join others of close observation of the natural world of native New England and the poet's meditations upon it. In its essence, the land and culture Bruchac celebrates is not lost to him, but is a heritage to be passed on through his family. In a second section, "Traveling Stories," the well-traveled poet views creatures and events from his perspective. In these encounters a notable fact emerges: Bruchac is always at home, always centered, no matter what he encounters. Humpback whales, a forest fire from the air, medicine bundles in a museum in South Dakota are all felt through the same wise sensibility and yield understanding for the reader as well as the writer.
