Burlington, ON (PRWEB) August 29, 2006 In her newest work of prose and insight, Voice of an Eagle, Joanna Shawana, Ojibwe/Odawa, Eagle Clan, shares her insight and lends her voice to women everywhere; challenging them to speak out and stand up to verbal, physical and sexual abuse in relationships in both families and work.
Her writings of encouragement and her courageous personal battles through abuse are chronicled in a way that only she could share. She has lived the life of the Nishnawbe Kwe--the Native Woman--and today, works in the Native community in Toronto.
Her poems of dispair and recovery mirror the pain she endured; the recovery reflected in the soaring flight of the spirit as the Eagle flies over open spaces, free of the pain of abuse and misuse at the hands of others.
Joanna's voice is heard in her lamentations for honest and loving family relationships, devoid of abusive elements. Personal healing for her is the ultimate; it represents the achievement of her lifetime and her wish for her readers.
Life is a journey which must be taken; her writings are uplifting and supportive, using native beliefs and custom to guide her journey. It is a story of passion, of belief, and of redemption for all who have suffered abuse at the hands of others.
Her voice leading to improvement in the conditions of women and families is her reward.
Rain Publishing is pleased to present the newest offering from Joanna Shawana, Voice of an Eagle.
