Wood Mountain Poems

Top of page

Wood Mountain is the home of western Canadian poet Andrew Suknaski. In this film, he talks about his part of the world, about its multicultural background, its Indigenous heritage, and the customs and stories of its different ethnic groups. In his poetry, Suknaski is caught up in the past, in the loneliness of the vast plains, and in making that experience live on to become a part of the present as well.
