Richard Wagamese passes away

The only thing I’ve ever read by this prolific writer is the posts he made on social media. I was always made better by his sensitive insights about Indigenous men, mental health, and healing.

Journey well, anishinaabe zhibii’iget.


For an example of one of his social media posts, see here. It will make you better. ❤


Zhibiiget is one who writes/draws; “acts on ‘it’ by writing or drawing”. See Ojibway Online Dictionary for more insight on this word, and others.
