We recognize their sovereignty, as there are no treaties on these lands, and we are dedicated to building a new relationship between our nations based on respect and consent.

✨ ABOUT TCR ISSUE 3.36 (Fall 2018) ✨

3.36 is jam-packed with new poetry by Fred Wah and Rita Wong, Paige Cardinal, David Dowker, and Scott Jackshaw, as well as an excerpt from “Six Boxes,” Helen Guri’s essay on sexual violence in and outside of Canadian writing communities.

This issue also includes two interviews hosted by TCR’s own Colin Browne—one with curator Pantea Haghighi, whose exhibit Modernism in Iran: 1958-1978 appeared at Griffin Art Projects in North Vancouver earlier this year, and one with Esther Shalev-Gerz, whose installation The Shadow stretches across a plaza on the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver campus.

Our interview with Roberto Rodríguez (also known as Dr. Cintli) focuses on the maíz culture that has spanned this continent for thousands of years, linking Indigenous peoples and nourishing forms of resistance and creation.

In our review section, see-to-see, 2018 Griffin Poetry Prize-winner Billy-Ray Belcourt imagines Mercedes Eng brandishing her book Prison Industrial Complex Explodes against the settler-police, preliminary to the work of “eat[ing] [their] brain[s],” and Mackenzie Ground “await[s] the conversations that are taking their first breaths” in the pages of Gregory Younging’s Elements of Indigenous Style.
