Tanya Tagaq Roars Plain Truth - a Poem

Plain Truth Roars - But Who Can Hear It?

Hunter senses, kills, butchers, eats animal
Direct transfer of life energy
Warm meat to warm meat
Direct, plain truth

Tanya Tagaq roars
Mind-heart trembles
Life force to life force
Direct, plain truth

Plain truth roars
For all to hear
Permeating all
Within and all about

     For Tanya Tagaq's magnificent performance - giving amazing life to the historic black & white movie "Nanook of the North" - in Halifax, on Jan 24, 2014, accompanied by violinist Jesse Zubot and percussionist Jean Martin.
