From Turtle Island to Gaza is a collection of poems on social justice and human rights, specifically focusing on the Indigenous and the Palestinian experience. Though the poems are short, they are heavily infused with biblical and historical references delving into a shared pain resulting from colonialism. While each poem could be read independently, the collection presents a more fulsome, stream-of-consciousness treatment of a complex topic when read in its entirety. Readers would benefit from having prior knowledge of Indigenous history in Canada and Palestinian history, particularly the colonial aspects. Even so, this collection presents opportunities for social studies lessons in engagement with literature.
