Lifting Hearts Off the Ground: Declaring Indigenous Rights in Poetry

Availability: Ready to download

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is a powerful proclamation of the principles that should guide Indigenous-Settler relations around the world. Some call it a blueprint for reconciliation. Some say that, if taken seriously, it could help states and Settler societies repair significant historic injustices and reject present colonialism. Yet The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is a powerful proclamation of the principles that should guide Indigenous-Settler relations around the world. Some call it a blueprint for reconciliation. Some say that, if taken seriously, it could help states and Settler societies repair significant historic injustices and reject present colonialism. Yet as a legal text, it’s not the easiest document to read or to imagine into action. In Lifting Hearts Off the Ground, two poets — one Indigenous, one Settler — come together to breathe life into the seemingly dry bones of the Declaration. And as we contemplate, wrestle with, and pray their words, we discover an invitation to renewed relationships with each other, the land, and Spirit. Afterword by Leah Gazan.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The book itself is beautiful to hold and is composed pleasantly. It is an artistic way to read the UNDRIP, while connecting it to current events. Would recommend.

    This is a great way to sit with and hear UNDRIP. Read a few a day. Hear the poems. Read out loud when possible.
