Synopsis

Three years after the death of his father, Martin Katanish realizes that it’s time to return to the Wolastoqiyik (Maleseet) territory of his ancestors. The Bear Man is waiting, and follows him, and the death of his father haunts him still. His arrival and the meeting with his brother do not go smoothly. Between the real world and the animal’s—made up—world, he understands that his father’s ashes are not where they should be.

Nmihtaqs Sqotewamqol /The Ashes of his Bones is a story of self-reclamation and truth that touches on themes such as kinship, revenge, land and forgiveness to consider our relationship to grief. The author also examines what is means to be Wolastoqiyik.
