I’m finding my talk 
And it may take some time, 
But I’m learning to speak 
In a language that’s mine.

A response to Rita Joe’s iconic poem “I Lost My Talk,” comes a companion picture book by award-winning spoken-word artist and Mi’kmaw activist Rebecca Thomas. A second-generation residential school survivor, Thomas writes this response poem openly and honestly, reflecting on the process of working through the destructive effects of colonialism.

I’m Finding My Talk is about rediscovering her community, and finding culture.
