Anne Acco’s Ekosi is a highly personal, self-reflective poetry and prose anthology. Ekosi, which means “that’s all” or “the end” in Cree, is an aptly-named title for this collection since Anne shares with the reader a lifetime of memories from her childhood in Cumberland House, Saskatchewan to her days in a far-away boarding school to vacations in Trinidad, her husband’s homeland. Grounded in the Cree/Métis community of Cumberland House, Anne pays homage to her family, her community, and her Métis culture, which has guided her throughout her life. Anne’s evocative prose vignettes and poetry will leave readers with a keen appreciation for the reflective, spiritual, and eclectic mind of a well-travelled writer.
