“Spirit Light Angels - Poet Laureate Sky Dancer shares her Story of 

with Louise B. Halfe-Skydancer

introduction by David Gullette
“We seek out the stories that are being told, and despite
the difficulty, we hear them in all their sad details. It is time to 
face the truth, educate
ourselves and respond accordingly with our hearts.”

• Louise Bernice Halfe – Skydancer was raised on Saddle Lake Reserve and 
attended Blue Quills Residential School. She graduated with a Bachelor 
of social work from the University of Regina and completed two years of 
Nechi Training in St. Albert’s Nechi Institute. Ms. Halfe serves on 
various committees throughout Canada and provides services with Opik, an 
Elders circle that works with apprehended children and their families. 
In 2005, she served as Saskatchewan’s second Poet Laureate. She is 
widely recognized for weaving Cree language and teachings into her 
works. Her books, Bear Bones and Feathers, Blue Marrow, The Crooked 
Good, and Burning In This Midnight Dream, Sôhkêyihta have received many 
accolades and awards. Her latest work is awâsis – kinky and disheveled.
David Gullette is Literary Director of the Poets' Theatre. His most 
recent book of poetry is Questionable Shapes. Two of his scripts have 
been presented in recent years by the Poets' Theatre: The Boston 
Abolitionists, and Four Generations of the Adams Family. He is currently 
at work on "Gaspar's Decision," a play based on his book about a 
Catholic Spanish missionary and poet who took up arms and joined the 
Sandinista insurrection against the Somoza dictatorship in Nicaragua.
