Published On: October 27, 2020

New NDSU Press book His Feathers Were Chains, by Denise K. Lajimodiere, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following description comes from the NDSU Press website:

“Lajimodiere's newest collection of poetry takes its title from a statue the author observed - an Indian on a horse - fashioned from welded-together farm implements. The premise of the collection is overt criticism of settler society, but the poetry is subtle, approachable, and grounded in Ojibwe knowledge and customs. Feathers is divided into five sections: Broken Glass Dreams, Identity, His Feathers Were Chains, Thin White Heat, and Dancing with a Whirlwind.”
