Gitche Manitou

Post by Wingnut's Way » 08-16-2012 12:56 AM

This poem explores the Algonquian concept of gitche manitou from a purely animistic point of perspective. There's a lot I could say about this, especially with regard to Western misinterpretations of what manitou means on its own and when used in conjunction with gitche. However, I think it's better to just let the poem speak for me.

I hope it's okay if I just link to it, since it's easier to update a single copy of the poem if I realize I want to change something. :)

Thanks to Fan for inviting me to share some of my work here. :) Hope you'll find that the subject matter suits this environment.
