Sacred Bundles Unborn
by Morningstar Mercredi and Fire Keepers

Sacred Bundles Unborn acknowledges the voices of women who have come forward and recognizes that coerced forced sterilization is happening, while establishing a narrative on this critical issue as it is currently playing out in 2021, while educating people of the dark reality of Canada’s negligence of the human rights of Indigenous women and women of color, whom are at a greater risk within the health system in their most vulnerable state during pregnancy. Each piece takes a unique approach to the many overlapping aspects informing this issue from the individual writer’s perspective, yet there is a thread of synergy between each piece. All are written in an accessible way as each author has eloquently and effectively spoken to the “unspoken” with integrity and grace, granting the reader as much ease as any human being can conceive in order to process this form of inhumane torture. All submissions are in the first person, whether a poem or narrative prose, in lay (non-academic) terms. “The goal of our collective, first and foremost, is the documentation of this ongoing genocide, from our perspective, in order to bring to the forefront of readers’ consciousness this archaic and barbaric atrocity that continues and is not “criminalized” in Canada.” Morningstar Mercredi
