Midnight Sweatlodge Book Launch in Winnipeg
Join Waubgeshig and special guests Rosanna Deerchild and Duncan Mercredi for the launch of his very first book!
Wednesday, June 15 · 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Midnight Sweatlodge tells the tale of family members, friends and strangers who gather together to partake in this ancient healing ceremony. Each person seeks traditional wisdom and insight to overcome pain and hardship, and the characters give us glimpses into their lives that are both tearful and true. Rice captures the raw emotion and unique challenges of modern Aboriginal life. It’s a hard-hitting and genuine look at the struggles First Nations people face.
