All offerings contain the writer's trademark satirical twist and are organized into the four cardinal directions: North for contemplation and wisdom; South for journeys both physical and spiritual; East for beginnings and youth; and West for maturity and responsibility. Topics include Ipperwash, powwows, language, Aboriginal theatre; art, globalization, postmodernism, food, museums, Indian time, identity, international travel, commerce, stereotypes, appropriation, and truth and reconciliation.
