Here's what people have to say-
-SUPAMAN (Christian Parrish),
Crow Hip Hop Recording Artist
"More than prayer and more than song, the beloved poems and prose comprising MOTHER OF NATIONS are blessings, offered in pure heart and true hope. Each word is medicine. Wisdom holder Dawn Karima honors our pasts, expands our present, and promises tomorrow will be just as full of wonder. Dawn Karima plants, waters, and nurtures the tree of life, then sings as it rains down abundant fruit. MOTHER OF NATIONS invites you to dance."
- Chip Livingston,
author of NAMING CEREMONY.
"Dawn Karima is a visionary, her poems navigate the sweep of history yet still articulate the value of each soul, shattering myths, honoring legends. Her pages do not lie flat as I read them, they sing with urgent, necessary songs. Hers is a powerful voice that transcends this sliver of time."
-Mona Susan Power (Standing Rock Dakota),
author of THE GRASS DANCER and SACRED WILDERNESS
