I am a Human Being – Anthology, 2022

The inspiration for this book began in August 2021 as a poetry contest by Ottawa’s Poet Laureate Albert Dumont to promote poetry. The theme for the contest was ‘I AM A HUMAN BEING’. This book is a compilation of poems submitted by 86 poets. Among them are 24 students from the Kitigan Zibi School and 27 students from the Ottawa Catholic School Board (most of them first-time poets).
All proceeds generated from sales of this book will go towards promoting poetry as medicine, bringing healing to those finding themselves in emotional distress.

Sitting by the Rapids, 2018

Poetry is the raging rapids and it is the little fish which doesn’t give up until the turbulent waters are behind it. Poetry is purpose, renewal and rebirth. Sitting by the Rapids is all of this and offers insight into the mind of an Indigenous man who lives with severe chronic pain and who found the strength through spirituality and poetry to put a life of alcohol abuse behind him forever.

Albert writes of Sitting by the Rapids: “The ancestors, living at the time of European contact had a way with words. Poetry spilled effortlessly from their lips because the spirit of the land guided their words. I take seriously my belief that medicine of extraordinary healing power is found in the verses of a poet who puts words together for the purpose of bringing peace and serenity to people in want of it. The counsels and poetry of a person living with pain are special and more meaningful to an individual in the throes of heartache.”

The Maple Leaves of Kichi Makwa, 2011/2017

This unique book is trilingual, written in Algonquin, English, and French. Maple Leaves is a special gift for any child, and can be used to help teach the Algonquin language. The lovely illustrations help convey an important anti-bullying message to today’s children.  No home or classroom should be without it!

From the back cover: “The storyteller of today must create powerful tales and legends now, which will help the people of the distant future keep their diminishing human emotions strong, while living their lives in the smoky-grey fog of advanced technology.” Maple Leaves is Albert’s humble contribution to this cause.
